Castlegar Community Services offers to do taxes for lower-income residents

Residents must make less than a certain income threshold to qualify

Castlegar and District Community Services Society (CDCSS) is offering to complete your income tax returns during the COVID-19 crisis.

To have your taxes done, you’re asked to pick up a tax form left outside the door at the CDCSS office, fill it out and put it in an envelope with your tax slips.

You’re then asked to return the material by slipping it into the CDCSS mail slot at 1007 2nd Street.

Volunteers will receive the envelope, e-file the tax returns to Canada Revenue and mail a copy out to you. The whole process could take up to a week.

To be eligible, you either must either be a single person who makes less than $35,000 annually, be a couple/family with an income of $45,000 or less, be a parent with one child who makes $40,000 or less annually or have an investment income of less than $1,000.

For each additional child, a parent can receive an additional $2,500 in their annual income and still be eligible for the tax service.
