Need help doing your taxes? Get them done for you, for free!

Tax time is coming, and it’s important that you do your taxes to keep getting the benefits and credits you’re eligible for. If you have a modest income and a simple tax situation, volunteers from the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) can do your taxes for you, for free!

The CVITP has free tax preparation clinics all across Canada, run by organizations and volunteers in your community. Tax clinics are open from mid-February to the end of April, with some even open year-round. You can also find a tax clinic with the free MyCRA web app when you select “Help with my taxes”.

If you live in Quebec, you can get help through the Volunteer Program, offered by Revenu Quebec.

We can help you

Tax help through the CVITP is available to anyone with a modest income and a simple tax situation. Last year, over 2,500 community organizations and more than 16,000 volunteers filed over 765,000 returns for Canadians.

Program volunteers do not file tax returns for those with complex tax situations, such as:

  • individuals filing returns for deceased persons
  • individuals filing for bankruptcy
  • self-employed individuals
  • individuals reporting capital gains or losses
  • individuals reporting employment expenses
  • individuals reporting business or rental income and expenses
