Volunteers offering income tax help

It’s tax time of the year again, and the group of volunteers for the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program will be at the Lions’ Den in Comox (250-339-6232) every Tuesday from 1 to 3:30 p.m. during March and April.

They will e-file taxes for seniors, families, individuals, persons with disabilities, students and newcomers to Canada who are eligible for this free service.

The volunteers have been trained by the Canada Revenue Agency to file very basic income tax returns. Basic eligibility is as follows:

Single person — up to $25,000

Couple — up to $35,000

Each dependent — $2,000

Interest income less than $1,000

They are not trained to complete complex returns for individuals who:

1. Report income for self-employment, rental income, capital gains/losses;

2. Claim employment expenses;

3. Are deceased or bankrupt.
