Seniors Tax Preparation

Volunteer Income Tax Program

Need a hand to prepare your tax return? If you do not know how to prepare your income tax and benefit return, we may be able to help you.

Saskatoon Services for Seniors in conjunction with Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) provides a free income tax service to individuals and couples who have lower incomes and a simple tax situations. The objective of the Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) is to help eligible taxpayers who do not know how to prepare their income tax and benefit returns, and who have low to modest income and a simple tax situation.

If you have mobility issues, we have a volunteer who can come to you. Please call 306-668-2762 and let us know that you have difficulty getting out, and need someone to come to your home for income tax preparation. We will call you back to arrange a time for our volunteer to come.

The CVITP is a collaboration between the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and Saskatoon Services for Seniors. We work with CRA to train and book volunteers to prepare the returns.
