INCOME TAX SERVICE.

An up-to-date income tax return can unlock benefits and rebates that boost your income and help you live better! 

The Community Volunteer Income Tax Program helps eligible individuals with modest incomes and simple tax situations complete their income tax returns. This free service can be of help to students, senior citizens, single parents, people with disabilities ... anyone who meets the income criteria and has a relatively simple return (see below). 

Appointments are available year round   Call 780.459.6666 to book today!

Multiple Years

If you have neglected your taxes for a few years, don't put it off any further. While we don't recommend it, we have had clients come in with up to 10 years of overdue returns. Bring them in and get them done - you will feel better. ​

Volunteer Tax Preparers

Our volunteers are screened and trained, and use Canada Revenue Agency's income tax software 'U-File.' Many of our volunteers have years of experience preparing taxes professionally.

You can make an appointment during regular office hours, Monday through Friday, 9 am to 4:30 pm

Please arrive 10 minutes early for your appointment. 

What to Bring

  • Government Issued Photo ID
