It’s that time of the year again and our group of volunteers will be at the Comox Lion’s Den every Tuesday from 1 to 3:30 p.m. during March and April.
They will e-file tax returns for seniors, families, individuals, persons with disabilities, students and newcomers to Canada who are eligible for this free service.
Volunteers have been trained by the CRA to file very basic income tax returns.
Basic eligibility is as follows:
• Single individuals: up to $30,000.
• Couple: up to $40,000.
• Single w/child: $35,000.
• Each dependent: $2,500.
• Interest income less than $1,000.
Volunteers are not trained to complete complex return for individuals who report income for self-employment, rental income, capital gains/losses, claim employment expenses, are deceased or who are bankrupt.
The Lion’s Den is at 1729 Comox Ave. Phone 250-339-6232.
