Volunteer for the Tax Program

At Saitsa, we know the burden that tax season can place on students’ shoulders, which is why we’ve partnered with the Canada Revenue Agency’s Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP).

The CVITP provides students and the immediate community with a FREE service to have their taxes done by dedicated student-volunteers who have received CRA training in this program.

If your maximum net income is $35,000 or below, you can file your tax returns for free!

Join us at AA105, between March 13th – April 14th and get your taxes filed for free!
