With tax season just around the corner, volunteers at Deltassist Family & Community Services are available to prepare returns for low-income Delta residents.
Many people do not know they need to file a tax return in order to receive the GST/HST tax credit or the Canada Child Tax Benefit. Filing a tax return on time is important when receiving other benefits such as the Guaranteed Income Supplement for seniors, MSP Premium Assistance and Pharmacare.
If you live in Delta, are on low income, have a simple return and are either unable to complete your return yourself or pay for assistance, Deltassist volunteers can help.
Volunteers receive training through Canada Revenue Agency’s Community Volunteer Income Tax Program and are able to complete tax returns for 2018 as well as 2017, 2016 and 2015.
Beginning Tuesday Feb. 19, South Delta residents can call 604-946-9526 to book an appointment at Deltassist’s Ladner office (202–5000 Bridge St.). North Delta residents can call 604-594-3455 to book an appointment at Deltassist’s North Delta office (9097 Scott Rd.).
