Income Tax Program Volunteers
Lend a hand! Tax filing support has been identified as an important poverty reduction strategy. Completing an income tax and benefit return can help individuals to get out of poverty, repay debts and develop a savings strategy by ensuring that existing benefits are not disrupted and financial supports are maximized. The tax clinic provides year-round tax preparation services to eligible individuals with a modest income and a simple tax situation. The CRA provides tax software and online-training for volunteers while Spruce Grove FCSS organizes and trains volunteers to identify when clients may be missing any benefits or financial supports.
If you have a basic understanding of income tax and would like to become a CVITP volunteer, please contact the CVITP Coordinator at 780-962-7618 or send us an email to volunteer.
