Free Tax Preparation Assistance Available For Low-Income Individuals and Families in Peel Region

BRAMPTON, ON (Feb 27, 2017) - The Region of Peel launches its free annual tax preparation clinics this weekend, starting Saturday, March 4, at its Regional offices in Mississauga and Brampton.  The Clinics will be offered every Saturday through March and April, with the exception of the Easter weekend.

Last year more than 2,000 returns were filed through the Region's program.

The clinics are offered at no charge to individuals whose income is $30,000 or less and families whose household income is $40,000 or less. The services are provided by volunteer members of the Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) of Ontario, as part of the Canada Revenue Agency's (CRA) Community Volunteer Income Tax Program.

The Region of Peel's program is one of many held across the region hosted by community-based non-profit organizations. All available free tax preparation clinics in Peel are listed on the CRA's website.
Advance sign-up is required and clients will be advised of the documents they need to bring when they make their appointments. Tax volunteers can complete tax filings for individuals with simple tax situations. Complex tax situations, such as self-employment income, bankruptcy, and Province of Quebec taxes cannot be completed by volunteers.
