Volunteer Tax Preparation Clinics and useful links in Abitibi-Baie-James-Nunavik-Eeyou

If you do not know how to prepare your income tax and benefit return, the Volunteer Tax Preparation Clinics may be able to help you.

Community organization volunteers prepare returns for eligible taxpayers who have low to modest income and a simple tax situation.

Are you eligible for help?

To find out if you are eligible for help, use the income levels shown in the table called "Maximum income levels".

Taxpayer status

Family income

Single person

up to $30,000

Couple

up to $40,000

One adult with one child

up to $35,000

 

Maximum income levels – QUÉBEC

  • For each additional child, add $2,500 to the suggested family income.
  • Interest income must be less than $1,000.

Community organizations have the flexibility to adjust or set eligibility criteria for tax filers based on the local economic environment, the population they serve, and their own capacity.

Eligible taxpayers normally served by the CVITP may include:

  • aboriginal peoples;
  • social assistance recipients;
  • newcomers to Canada;
  • seniors; and
  • students.

 

Volunteers do not prepare complex returns, such as returns for individuals who:

 

  • have self-employment income;
  • have business or rental income and expenses;
  • have capital gains or losses;
  • have employment expenses;
  • file for bankruptcy; or
  • deceased in the year.
