Brampton - The Region of Peel’s Human Services department is partnering with the Certified General Accountants (CGA) of Ontario, Peel Chapter, once again this year to offer free income tax preparation services for low income individuals and families. CGA of Ontario, Peel Chapter, will be preparing tax returns in March and April 2013 as part of Canada Revenue Agency’s Community Volunteer Income Tax Program. Advance registration is required.

This service is available to individuals with a gross income (before deductions) under $30,000; single-parent families with a gross income (before deductions) under $35,000 and couples with gross income (before deductions) under $40,000.

Income Tax returns with the following types of income and/or expenses do not qualify for volunteer tax assistance as these types of returns are more complex and require additional time to prepare:

• Rental income (or losses)
• Support payments (paid or received)
• Business income (or losses)
• Interest income exceeds $1,000
• Foreign income
• Returns for deceased individuals
• Capital gains (or losses)
• Returns for bankrupt individuals
• Employment expenses
• Corporate or trust income tax returns

This service is available for residents of Ontario only. E-filing is also available at all locations. In the event that e-filing is not available due to technical difficulties, accountants will prepare paper copies of the Tax Return and clients will be responsible for mailing their completed return to the Canada Revenue Agency. E-filing is not available for those submitting a tax return for the first time.

Call the tax clinic location nearest you to book an appointment. Once registered, you will be advised which documents to bring to your appointment.
