Low-income tax help

— image credit:

During the months of March and April, Deltassist Family and Community Services volunteers will be available to prepare income tax returns for low-income Delta residents.

Many people do not know that they need to file a tax return in order to receive the GST/HST credit or the Canada Child Tax Benefit.

Filing a tax return on time is important when receiving other benefits such as the Guaranteed Income Supplement for seniors, MSP Premium Assistance and Pharmacare.

The volunteer program is now underway. Ladner and Tsawwassen residents can call 604-946-9526 to book an appointment at Deltassist’s Ladner office (4891 Delta St.) and North Delta residents can call 604-594-3455 to book an appointment at Deltassist’s North Delta office (9097 120 St.).  Deltassist volunteers are able to complete tax returns for 2010 as well as 2009, 2008, and 2007.  For more information, please contact Carly Geistlinger, community services coordinator, at 604-946-9526.
