Free Community Tax Preparation Services Update
Community Financial Counselling Services is usually operating their free tax preparation service at the Norquay bldg. tax clinic at 401 York, and help out around 8000-10,000 folks get their taxes done. This year with COVID they are unable to operate there, and want to make sure that all communities know how to file this year, just differently than usual.
Community Financial Counselling Services (CFCS) is providing FREE income tax preparation to low/modest income clients through the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP).
