The deadline for filing 2021 Canada Revenue Agency personal income tax returns is on May 2. This year, Richmond organizations are offering a mix of drop-off /pick-up and in-person income tax preparation assistance primarily for low income individuals ($35,000 annual income or lower, $35,000 to 37,500 with one child) and families ($45,000 dual annual income or lower).
Please bring valid government-issued photo identification and all relevant documents such as T4, T5 and Canada Child Benefit slips. And remember, it’s important to file your taxes whether you’ve earned income or not to ensure you’re receiving all of the Canadian tax system benefits and credits.
