08 Jan What is the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program?
A free tax clinic is a place where eligible people can get their tax returns done for free. These clinics are hosted by community organizations across Canada through the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program. There are different types of free tax clinics. Walk-in: Show up during advertised hours and a volunteer will do your tax return for you on a first-come, first-served basis. By appointment: Make an appointment to see a volunteer, and the volunteer will do your tax return during the appointment. Drop-off and pick-up: Show up during advertised hours and drop off your documents. A volunteer will do your return, and you pick it up at a later time. You will have to prove your identity when you pick up your return and documents.}
