Community Volunteers are needed to help file simple income tax returns for people in your community, on behalf of the Canada Revenue Agency’s Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP).  This free program helps eligible individuals and families who need a hand preparing their income tax and benefit returns.   Community organizations host tax preparation clinics and arrange for volunteers to prepare tax returns for individuals and families with a modest income and a simple tax situation so that they can honour their tax obligations and receive their tax credits and benefits.  As a volunteer you will: give back to your community; help individuals get or maintain uninterrupted access to benefits and credits; increase your personal tax knowledge; gain new skills and improve existing ones; do work that is valued and recognized and receive training, support, and reference materials including free tax software.  If you would like to volunteer, please contact your local CVITP coordinator at 1-855-516-4405 or go to www.cra.gc.ca/volunteer .
