The North Rocky View Community Links in Airdrie is offering the Community Volunteer Income Tax program (CVITP).

This program is in partnership with the Canada Revenue Agency and is aimed to support resident's simple tax situation.

"Any community members who fall within certain income thresholds can access tax return support from Community Links," stated Elizabeth Wyczynski, the community relations specialist at Community Links.

According to Wyczynski, all you have to do is visit their office and meet with an intake worker to find out if you qualify.

"We sit down, ask an array of questions; we take a look at your tax slips and then it's sent off and put in the hands of these volunteers who are qualified to put in your tax return."

Tax season can be a daunting time for those who might not be confident when filing official tax forms or have the money to pay an accountant so this is a way to help those in this certain situation.

"What people don't realize is, doing your taxes is what opens up the opportunity to access so many supports."

Wyczynski stated being able to offer a program like this is crucial to helping Albertans move forward with their lives.

"We serve upwards of 600 people every tax season, and it's likely going to be more this year."

This year, the deadline for having your taxes filed is April 30. The earliest you can submit your taxes is February 19, while June 15 is the deadline if you are self-employed.
