Deltassist volunteers offering free tax help for low-income Delta residents

Those interested can submit their tax returns for the years 2015 through 2018

Delta’s low-income residents can get help filing their taxes — for free — thanks to a volunteer program by Deltassist.

In a press release, the organization said filing taxes on time is important when receiving government benefits such as the guaranteed income supplement for seniors, health care premiums assistance or pharmacare. Volunteers will complete tax returns for the year 2015 through 2018.

“Many people do not know that they need to file a tax return in order to receive the government sales tax credit or the Canada Child Tax Benefit,” the release reads.

“If you live in Delta, are on low-income, have a simple return, and are either unable to complete your income tax and benefit return yourself or pay for assistance, Deltassist volunteers are here to help.”

South Delta residents can call 604-946-9526 to book an appointment at Deltassist’s Ladner office (202 – 5000 Bridge Street) and North Delta residents can call 604-594-3455 to book an appointment at Deltassist’s North Delta office (9097 Scott Rd.).
