Income Tax Assistance
Deltassist hosts the Canada Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) program through Canada Revenue Agency. Every year volunteers are available during March and April to assist individuals and families who are unable to complete their income tax returns. This service is for low income Delta residents only. Clinic appointments may also be available throughout the year on an as needed basis.
Individuals unable to pay for assistance and unable to complete their income tax still MUST submit Canadian income tax returns to be able to qualify for the help and support they need to both survive and work out of their situation.
The timely submission of a tax return is critical to receiving the GST tax credit and the Canada Child Tax Benefit for those in immediate need.
“Sometimes circumstances move your life in a direction you never intended to go.” Assisting Deltans who face such challenges to obtaining help that is offered has been a Deltassist focus for decades. Each year community organizations have stepped up with donations to offset the moderate costs and each year many volunteers offer their time to both receive training and do the work.
This year we expect to help over 500 Deltans.
On behalf of all involved, Deltassist is happy to offer a big Thank You for making Delta a better place to live.
This work will helping many access benefits from:
- GST tax credits
- Child Tax Benefits
- Guaranteed Income Supplements for Seniors
- MSP Premium Assistance
