What is the Income Tax Clinic?
For over two decades, Immigrant Services Calgary has been a key agency participating in the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) Community Volunteer Income Tax Program, focusing on serving newcomer communities across Alberta.
Free tax services offered:
- 1-on-1 tax clinics with the latest professional tax software offered year-round;
- Informational group sessions on annual updates to income tax returns;
- If you missed the deadline for filing taxes, our team can assist you in filing previous years’ tax returns as well. Exceptions may be made according to individual circumstances.
If you fall within the low to modest income bracket and have a simple tax situation, our CRA community tax volunteers can help you file your taxes, in-person or online, for free!
