Lanark Renfrew Health and Community Services
Free Community Volunteer Income Tax Program
RESUMING in modified form
Lanark Renfrew Health and Community Services are happy to announce the CVITP will resume its program in a modified form, starting Monday April 20, 2020. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, volunteers will be completing tax returns by connecting
with taxpayers over the telephone.
Beginning April 20, 2020, interested taxpayers can contact 613-257-7121 or 1-800-667- 2617 extension 3104 or extension 3200 to arrange for a volunteer to help prepare their taxes by telephone. Due to number of calls you may have to leave a message. Please leave your name, phone number, whose income tax you wish to file, area/site in which your taxes are normally completed and if you have a preferred volunteer.
Taxpayers can also send this same information to request tax service by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. A volunteer will return your call/e-mail and prepare the taxes for the 2019 tax year.
Please remember that eligibility for this program is based on a modest income, meaning that total family income is less than the amount shown in the chart below, depending on the size of your family.
1 person 35,000
2 person 45,000
Per child 2,500
Canada Revenue Agency has extended the deadline for filing taxes until June 1, 2020.
According to the Canada Revenue Agency website, benefits and credits will not be interrupted if taxes are filed by this date.
