Program Lends Helping Hand During Tax Season

With the tax deadline looming many of us are feeling the pressure to file, and help is available for some in the form of a free tax clinic.  

Ashley Clarke of the Canada Revenue Agency tells CHSJ News the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program is for those with a modest income and a simple tax situation. 

For a single person to be eligible they can't make more than $30,000 per year, it's $40,000 for a couple and $35,000 for an adult with a child, however according to Clarke those numbers can vary slightly from place to place.

Clarke says seniors, students and social assistance recipients use the service, among others. You can see a list of clinics taking place in Saint John by clicking here
