Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP)

The objective of the CVITP is to help eligible taxpayers who do not know how to prepare their income tax and benefit returns, and who have low to modest income and a simple tax situation.

The CVITP is a collaboration between the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and community organizations who host tax preparation clinics and arrange for volunteers to prepare the returns.

The CRA offers training and tax software for volunteers, as well as coordinators to guide community organizations as they deliver the program.

Each year community organizations and volunteers help over half a million Canadians file their tax returns.
