The Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) is a collaboration with the BWG Library and the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). The program helps individuals and families in need by preparing their income tax and benefit returns. The returns are prepared by community volunteers for people who meet the eligibility requirements of a modest income and a simple tax situation.
To ensure safety in the COVID-19 pandemic, the BWG Library has adopted a modified drop-off program for the CVITP in 2021. After registering, participants will be contacted by a librarian and arrangements will be made for dropping off tax documents and information at the Library. The Library will quarantine the documents before passing them to the volunteers, who will prepare the returns. After the returns are completed the documents will be sent to the participants. This process will take several weeks.
If you wish to participate in this program, please confirm that you meet the eligibility requirements of a simple tax situation and modest income, then fill in the form. Eligibility details and registration form are found on the BWG Library’s website. You will be contacted by the BWG Library to arrange how to drop off your documents and given a special envelope in which to place your documents and forms.
