Would you like to help members in your community with low or modest incomes file their tax returns for free, and receive government benefits to which they may be entitled?
What is the CVITP? The Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) is an unique initiative within the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), where individuals with modest incomes and a simple income tax situation can have their income tax prepared free of charge by volunteers in their community. They have been offering this service for 47 years.
The CVITP supports community organizations by offering training and free income tax software for volunteers. The CRA also provides guidance and Efiling software to community organization coordinators as they deliver the program.
The Coronation Centre has agreed to host a clinic for the upcoming tax season. Is this something you may be interested in doing? Stay tuned for more info coming soon.
