Free income tax clinics for low-income community members are returning to Brighouse library this weekend.

The sessions are offered in partnership with the Lord's Harvest Fellowship and will be in English. Trained volunteers will help community members file their tax returns at no cost.

To qualify for the service, single persons must earn no more than $35,000 and a couple must have a maximum income of $45,000, in addition to $2,500 per child.

Those interested can register for a session by either calling 604-231-6413 or visiting the Ask Me desk on the second floor of Brighouse library. Couples will have to sign up for one appointment slot per person.

When attending the free clinic, community members are asked to bring a piece of government-issued ID and all relevant tax slips such as T4, T5 and Canada Child Benefit. The print documents will be returned to participants at pick-up. 

“We are always blessed and excited every year for the past twelve years that the Income Tax Clinic has been extending helping hands in preparing and filing income taxes for students, seniors, new immigrants and people with modest income,” said Pastor Abe Lagayan, representative of The Lord’s Harvest Fellowship.

“We are also grateful that we are able to continue our partnership with the library in providing this vital service to community!”

The first clinic will be offered tomorrow March 4 from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. The clinics will run on Saturdays until April 29, with the exception of April 8, with drop-off appointments between 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
