Front-desk volunteers needed for free income-tax service

Program offered to low-income individuals and couples

Volunteers are needed starting next month to help with the front desk/reception of a free income-tax preparation program in Abbotsford for low-income people.

The volunteers will handle such things as phone calls, appointments and client drop-offs.

The tax returns are completed by volunteers in March and April through a collaboration between the Canada Revenue Agency and the Clearbrook Golden Age Society.

The program serves individuals with an income of up to $35,000 and couples with an income of up to $45,000. The clinics are held in the basement of Garden Park Tower (2825 Clearbrook Rd.).

The program will start taking appointments Feb. 19, and spots will be available Monday to Friday, starting March 1, from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m.

Those interested in volunteering for the front desk are asked to send an email to incometax@gardenparktower.ca.

Appointments can be booked starting Feb. 18 by dropping by the office, calling 604-744-0109 or emailing incometax@gardenparktower.ca.
