Community Volunteer Income Tax Program

Needing a helping hand with completing your income taxes? The Community Resource Centre and its volunteers are trained in assisting individuals and families with a modest income and a simple tax situation.

Modest Income

Your total family income should be less than the amount shown in the chart below.

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

Simple Tax Situation

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
