Community Volunteers Wanted! Become a CVITP Volunteer!
Volunteers are needed to help file simple income tax returns for eligible people in your community, on behalf of the Canada Revenue Agency’s Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP).
If you have a basic understanding of income tax and are interested in helping out your community, come Lend a Hand! The CRA will support you by providing training and free tax preparation software. The registration period to become a volunteer is from October through February.
As a volunteer with the CVITP you will give back to your community by helping individuals receive their benefits and credits. You will increase your personal tax knowledge, gain new skills and improving existing ones, all while doing work that is valued and recognized.
