Community Volunteer Income Tax Program
Our Community Volunteer Income Tax Program has ended for the year. We will share the details for the 2018 program once all the details have been confirmed.
This year we helped over 6000 people, filed over 5000 tax returns and brought over $16.2 million dollars back into our community!
Thank you to everyone who came out and supported the SFBLC Community Volunteer Income Tax Program this year! It was a huge success!
None of this would have been possible without our amazing volunteers, the Community Initiatives Fund and Affinity CU. Thank you for all for your time, support and resources. We're lucky to have partners like you!
The Community Volunteer Income Tax Program provides assistance for low-income individuals and families with simple tax situations.
Taxpayers who may be eligible for assistance include:
- Social assistance recipients
- Newcomers to Canada
- Status Indian tax exempt income
