Income Tax Clinic for 55+

It’s that time of year again!

WTSS will be hosting its annual tax clinic again between Feb and April of 2017.
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 Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and community organizations like West Toronto Support Services.

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