It’s tax time. Do you need help with filling out and filing your personal income tax paperwork? There is help for this in Pender Harbour. The Community Volunteer Income Tax Program is back in Pender this year and appointments are held at the Pender Harbour Community School and at the Pender Harbour Health Centre. A volunteer will help eligible clients with income tax preparation. This is a free service with three options for assistance. Walk-In Clinics will be held on a first come, first serve basis at the Community School every Tuesday and at the Health Centre every Wednesday in March and April from 9am to noon. Another option is to drop off your tax information and then pick up the Tax Return once it is completed; you can drop off your tax information at the Community School on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursdays (except during Spring Break) or at the Health Centre Monday to Friday 9am–3pm. The third option is to make an appointment with the volunteer to ensure that you will have the chance to use the service. Volunteers can help you prepare your income tax and benefit return if you have modest income and a simple tax situation. If you would like to make an appointment with the Volunteer Income Tax Program the number to call for an appointment is 604-741-5132.
