Income Tax Clinic

Income tax clinic update - March 23, 2020

To help protect the health of residents and staff, the FCSS office has temporarily suspended in-person services until further notice. Staff will continue to offer services by phone at 780-962-7618. Thank you for your patience as we respond to requests and inquiries in the order in which they are received.

Residents who have already dropped off taxes for completion will have their taxes e-filed. Residents will be contacted by phone to inform on the status of their tax return.

Effective March 24, 2020, new tax completion intakes for eligible residents will be accepted by phone at 780-962-7618.

Residents are encouraged to use self-serve options where possible including online. Please note Canada Revenue Agency has extended the 2019 tax deadline from April 30 to June 1, 2020.
