Free Tax Clinic @ CIES Starts Next Week

CIES has been a partner with the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program for more than a decade and have been proud to provide tax services at no cost to those who need it. The program was introduced in 1971 as a partnership between the Department of National Revenue (as it was known then) and various community organizations. It was intended to ensure that all taxpayers had equal access to the tax system. In 1988, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) established a partnership with Revenu Qu├ębec and volunteers from the province of Quebec, to have volunteers prepare both federal and provincial returns for eligible individuals.

Each year volunteers and community organizations help over half a million Canadians file their tax returns. Through this program, CIES sees first hand the compassionate and charitable nature of Calgarians and the satisfaction our volunteers take in providing a valuable service to members of their community.

Typically, to qualify for services at a free tax clinic, your annual income can't exceed:
$30,000 for single individuals.
$40,000 for couples.
$35,00 for adults with one child (with $2,500 added for each additional dependent).

If you think you qualify or have any questions give us a call 403-235-3666.
