Clarkson Community Church has been serving the local community in Clarkson and beyond for over 20 years. We are offering, in conjunction with the Canada Revenue Agency, the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program to prepare relatively simple income tax returns for those with modest or no incomes. We welcome everyone including students, newcomers to Canada and seniors.
Our tax clinic will prepare your return FREE OF CHARGE.
We look forward to being able to help you prepare and file your 2020 tax return.
Benefits of our FREE TAX clinic
Our free tax clinic will help you to receive your refund if you are entitled to one, and also receive all the benefits to which you are entitled when you file a tax return.
How do you get in touch with us?
Please contact us using the form below. A volunteer will contact you to arrange a time that is convenient for both of you to prepare and file your tax return. See How do we prepare your return? Please make sure that you have reviewed the Tax Returns that we can prepare before you contact us.
How do we prepare your return?
Due to COVID-10, we will prepare your return remotely this year. There will be no in-person meetings; the volunteer will prepare your return using FaceTime or Zoom. (If you do not have access to one of these services, we will contact you by telephone.)
The volunteer will need to verify your identity using a piece of government issued photo identification. We will take your information over the video call or by telephone. You will have to consent to our doing your return and to our filing your return using the Government of Canada’s NETFILE service. We will not retain a copy of your return and will not provide you with a printed copy of your return – however, we can email you a PDF copy. You will have all of the information that is used to complete your tax return in the Notice of Assessment you receive once your return is processed by the CRA
