2018-04 Low Income Tax Clinic & Free Tax Consultation Services

Low-income families may be qualified for tax refunds and benefits such as the HST credit, but in order to receive such benefits, they need to provide the right identification and documents, and possess the knowhow and ability to file income tax returns. This year, CICS Settlement and Integration Services (SIS) again teamed up with the Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario (CPA Ontario), Welcome Centre Markham South and The Investors Group to help break the tax filing barriers for low-income families.

With extensive coordination and seamless teamwork, we organized a total of 20 income tax clinic sessions in March and early April and successfully helped 901 newcomers and low-income clients – a new record – to file their 2017 income tax returns. As in past years, the valuable partnership with CPA Ontario was a major factor in the success of the tax clinic series.

In addition, a one-on-one Income Tax Consultation Session was conducted to benefit clients who did not meet the eligibility criteria of the income tax clinics and yet needed help and advice on how to file their tax returns. We look forward to refining our collaboration with CPA Ontario so that our target clients will receive more efficient and effective services at our tax clinics.
