Tax Help for Those With Modest Income

Orangeville | by Jill Young  

The Orangeville Library is hosting free tax clinic for those who qualify starting March 12th.


The public library in Orangeville is helping some in the community with free tax help.

The Community Volunteer Income Tax program will provide a free tax clinic starting March 12th.

It will help those with a modest income with a simple tax return for 2019 filings.

The clinic runs on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. starting Thursday, March 12th. (no clinic scheduled for April 9 and April 30). 

The clinic is on a first come, first serve basis for those who are eligible.

The CVITP volunteer will conduct a short interview with clients who are dropping off information, do their taxes at a later time, and then call them to come and pick them up on another clinic date.

A modest income is defined as total family income that is less than:

1 person $35,000
2 persons $45,000
3 persons $47,500
4 persons $50,000

Clinic dates in March and April: Thursday, March 12; Tuesday, March 17; Thursday, March 19;
Tuesday, March 24; Thursday, March 26; Tuesday, March 31; Thursday, April 2; Tuesday, April 7;
Tuesday, April 14; Thursday, April 16, Tuesday, April 21; Thursday, April 23 and Tuesday, April 28
(pick-up only)

A tax situation is simple if your income comes from any of these sources:

• employment
• pension
• benefits such as the Canada Pension Plan, disability insurance, employment insurance, and
social assistance
• registered retirement savings plans (RRSPs)
• support payments
• scholarships, fellowships, bursaries or grants
• interest (under $1,000)
Your tax simple is not simple (not eligible) if you:
• are self-employed or have employment expenses
• have business or rental income and expenses
• have capital gains or losses
• filed for bankruptcy in the tax year (or the year before, if that return has not yet been filed)
• are completing a tax return for a deceased person
