Volunteer to Help with County Tax Program

 

The Volunteer Tax Program offered by Yellowhead County is an excellent program designed to assist lower-income residents of all ages to have their income tax preparation for free. If you have a basic understanding of income tax preparation you can help!

 

 

As a CVITP volunteer, you will receive training, guidance and tax software.

Volunteers complete tax returns for eligible people who have a modest income and a simple tax situation.

You can volunteer as often as you want. The busiest time is tax season, from the beginning of March to early May, but many people need help throughout the year.

Some experience doing tax returns is helpful, but you will be given web-based or in-person training about volunteer responsibilities, taxes, and how to use the tax software.

The Volunteer Tax Program offered by Yellowhead County is an excellent program designed to assist lower-income residents of all ages to have their income tax preparation for free.

 

 

Volunteer with Yellowhead County FCSS to help people by doing their taxes!
With the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP), you will help people get their benefits.

 

The program has been very successful in previous years and Yellowhead County is happy to be able to offer it again thanks to volunteers that participate in the training provided by Canada Revenue Agency.

Clients will be asked to sign an authorization form in order for one of the volunteers to complete your tax return.

To determine if you qualify to have your taxes done for free through this program, your tax return needs to fit within the following guidelines:

  • • The tax return must not be complex ( eg. no farm or business taxes)
  • • Single income is $30,000 or less.
  • • Couples income is $40,000 or less.
  • • Family income for one Adult with one child is 35,000 or less.
    • $2,500.00 added for each additional child

Even if someone doesn’t have to pay any taxes, a current tax return is required for government subsidies to continue without disruption i.e. child tax credit, government pensions.

This service is available for Yellowhead County and Parkland County residents.
