The Comox Valley Lions Club is once again offering a Community Volunteer Income Tax Program to low-income earners in the area.
The service is free to any person who falls within the following annual income guidelines:
Single person – $35,000
Couple – $45,000
One adult w/child – $45,000
Each additional child – $2,500
Interest income less than $1,000
The volunteers have been trained by the CRA to file very basic income tax returns.
The volunteers 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.
The service will run every Tuesday throughout the months of March and April, from 1-3:30 p.m. Drop-offs and walk-ins are welcome. The Comox Valley Lions Club is located at 1729 Comox Ave. in Comox (entrance from the rear parking lot).
