Income Tax Returns
Need help filing your tax return?
The SOS Income Tax program provides assistance with the preparation of basic income tax returns for low-income individuals and families. The program works in conjunction with the Revenue Canada Community Volunteer Income Tax Program. This ensures that volunteers participate in on-line training sessions.
Regular Tax clinics are held from March 1 to April 30 each year. The program is also available year-round by appointment.
Filing your taxes improves access to government benefits (e.g. Universal Childcare Tax Benefit, GST and Guaranteed Income Supplement) support services and tax credits.
Annual income criteria to qualify (total family income is under):
- 1 person: $35,000
- 2 people: $45,000
- 3 people: $47,500
- 4 people: $50,000
Home or care facility visits are available to those with mobility issues.
Donations are gratefully accepted.
To make an Income Tax appointment, please call 250-248-2093 ext. 229.
The program takes place at the SOS Community Services Centres in Parksville, at 245 West Hirst Ave, and in Qualicum Beach, at 744 Primrose St.
