Need a hand to prepare your return?

Community organizations host free tax clinics to prepare returns for eligible taxpayers.

Are you eligible?

You may be eligible if you have a simple tax situation and meet the suggested family income level.

Suggested family income (except for Quebec)
Taxpayer Family income
Individual $30,000
Couple $40,000
Individual with a dependant $35,000
  • For each additional dependant, add $2,500 to the suggested family income.
  • Interest income must be less than $1,000.

If you are a resident of Quebec, verify your eligibility with an organization that offers volunteer tax preparation clinics in your area.
