Tax season is just around the corner, and volunteers at Deltassist Family & Community Services are 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 tax 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.

Deltassist volunteers are here to help people living in Delta, on low-income and either unable to complete their income tax and benefit return themselves or pay for assistance. Volunteers receive training through Canada Revenue Agency’s community volunteer income tax program and are able to complete tax returns for 2017 as well as 2016, 2015 and 2014.

Beginning Tuesday, Feb. 13, North Delta residents can call 604-594-3455 to book an appointment at Deltassist’s North Delta office (9097 120th St.). South Delta residents, meanwhile, can call 604-946-9526 to book an appointment at Deltassist’s Ladner office (202 – 5000 Bridge St.).

For more information, please contact Colleen Danes, community services coordinator, at 604-946-9526 or colleend@deltaassist.com.
