Helpful Resources for Tax Season

 

Helpful Resources & Support for Tax Season

March 2023

 

 

It is tax season again. This year we want to take advantage of the timing and pass on some useful information related to your taxes and other benefits which are sometimes attached to tax filing.

 

CRA Info Sessions:

In February, the Canada Revenue Agency released its most recent pre-recorded webinar sharing information on the different tax benefits and credits that are available for people with disabilities. This webinar might be helpful to you! It includes information on:

Disability Tax Credit (DTC)
Child Disability Benefit (CDB)
Canada Workers Benefit (CWB) disability supplement
Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP) and Home Buyers Plan (HBP)
Canada Caregivers Credit (CCC)
Ways to do your taxes and other CRA services.

 

You can find the link to Webinar on the Benefits and Credits for Persons with Disabilities here -> English Video / French Video

 

 

The CRA also has some of its past webinars available online that include more information on the different tax benefits and credits available for people with disabilities. You can access these webinars here:

Free Income Tax Clinics:

 

Do you need help with your tax return? You may be able to get your taxes done by a volunteer for free.

 

The Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) is a longstanding partnership between the CRA and community organizations and their volunteers.

 

Through this program, community organizations host free tax clinics where volunteers file tax returns for free for people with a modest income and a simple tax situation. There are also options to get help in person, over the phone or virtually.

The process to file your taxes is never fun. But even if you don't usually pay taxes it is always recommended to file as you may still be eligible for other benefits like the GST credit for example.
