It's tax time again, and this year we're pleased to partner with the Financial Empowerment Collaborative and First Lutheran Church to provide free one-on-one income tax help for the community.

You may be eligible for help if you meet the income requirements and if you have a simple tax situation (below). Help is provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

See the dates, times and locations of tax programs at our locations.

Family Size Total Family Income
One person $30,000
One person with one dependant $35,000 (add $2,500 for each additional dependant)
Couple $40,000 (add $2,500 for each dependant)

In general, your tax situation is simple if you have no income or if your income comes from these sources:

  • employment
  • pension
  • benefits such as CPP, disability, CCB, EI, social assistance
  • RRSP
  • support payments
  • scholarships, fellowships, bursaries or grants
  • interest (under $1,000)

Your tax situation is not simple if you:

  • are self-employed or have employment expenses
  • have business or rental income and expenses
  • have capital gains or losses
  • file for bankruptcy
  • are completing a tax return for a deceased person
