It’s been a challenging year, but Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) hopes it can make one thing easier – doing your taxes.
It’s important to do your taxes on time, every year. Getting them done will make sure you continue to receive your entitled benefit and credit payments.
Volunteers may be able to do your taxes for free through the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP). You could be eligible if you have a modest income and a simple tax situation.
This year, many community organizations are hosting free, virtual tax clinics where you can get tax help by video conference, by phone or through a document drop-off arrangement.
A list of tax clinics is posted on the CRA website. They’re generally offered in March and April, with some even open year-round. You can also find a tax clinic with the free MyCRA web app when you select “Help with my taxes”.
