Income Tax clinics for 55+

income taxIt’s that time of year again!

We will be hosting our annual tax clinic again at Loyola Arrupe Centre (1709 Bloor St. W.)

The program is provided in part by the CVITP (The Community Volunteer Income Tax Program) whose objective is to help eligible taxpayers who do not know how to prepare their income tax and benefit returns, and who have low to modest income and a simple tax situation. The CVITP is a collaboration between the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and community organizations like West Toronto Support Services who host tax preparation clinics and arrange for volunteers to prepare the returns.

Last year, over 2,000 organizations and their 16,000 volunteers supported the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP). Together, they filed over 600,000 tax returns for people in their community.

For more information about the CVITP, or to find a participating community organization in your area, go to www.cra.gc.ca or call the CRA at 1–800–959–8281.
