United Way Simcoe Muskoka tax sites in Essa Township and New Tecumseth are now open and will continue to run for the months of March and April.

This vital, free tax preparation service is offered to individuals and families, seniors and persons with disabilities with low incomes in partnership with the Canada Revenue Agency Community Volunteer Income Tax Program.

“Tax season can be difficult and tax preparation fees can be prohibitive to many,” says Brian Shelley, chief executive and philanthropy officer, United Way Simcoe Muskoka. “By offering this service for free, we hope that we can help individuals access social benefits that they may be missing out on.”

  • New Tecumseth Public Library (Alliston branch) — 17 Victoria St. E., Alliston
  • Essa Public Library (Angus branch) — 8505 County Rd. 10, Unit 1, Angus
