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.
Our in-house program runs March 1 to April 30 each year. We also offer off-season tax preparation beginning May 1, dependent on volunteer availability.
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:
- Singles $30,000 and under
- Single with child $35,000 and under
- Couples $40,000 and under
Home or care facility visits are available to those with mobility issues.
Donations are gratefully accepted.

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.
