Canadian taxes - Community Volunteer Income Tax Program does taxes for free

I don't see any other place to post this so here goes. If you need help filing your taxes and you have a moderate to low income, you can access one of the free clinics. There are criteria to qualify but definitely check it out if you have a simple return.  Please don't fall for the "instant refund" ads. If you efile (which the clinics do) and you have direct deposit, the refund is usually there in 3 - 5 days. Those instant refund people take a percentage of your return which is usually way more than you should pay for a return. 

This year it will be mostly virtual.  I do returns for a men's shelter and even this past year, everything was done over the internet.

  • Thanks for the info. I have always thought about helping with these types of events but could never figure out what to do and didn't take the time to research further. I will look into it!
