Book an appointment with our trained staff and arrive with all the required information and forms to make it a smooth process.
WHO ARE WE AND WHAT DO WE DO?
The Students’ Union Volunteer Tax Program at the University of Calgary began in 2000. Since then, our coordinators, Client Relations, E-file and Audit Team Leads, along with over 100 Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) trained volunteers, assist members of the campus community in completing and filing their tax returns for free (either by e-filing or providing a mail-in tax return to clients).
What is the StudentS’ Union Volunteer Tax Program?
The Canada Revenue Agency, and other Community Volunteer Income Tax Programs (CVITPs) similar to ours, host free tax preparation clinics all over Canada for qualifying low-income individuals, seniors, and new immigrants and families. Every year at the University of Calgary, qualified volunteers are selected to prepare tax returns for eligible members of the campus community – many of whom are students and university employees. The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), in conjunction with the Students’ Union Volunteer Tax Program team, provides training and tax software to over 100 volunteers who help to file over 1,000 returns annually.
