Cochrane-offered community volunteer income tax program returns, helping residents file their taxes

(Cochrane, AB) – The Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP), offered by Cochrane Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) provides eligible residents assistance with filing their 2023 income taxes.

The program, run by FCSS and supported by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), assists eligible low-income residents with a simple tax situation file their annual income taxes. Working with trained community volunteers, the program helps residents access necessary and applicable government benefits.

“This important service would not be possible without our community volunteers,” says Kim Krawec, Manager of FCSS, Town of Cochrane. “Last year, four volunteers assisted with filing 651 tax returns. The tax assistance provided through this program has positively impacted hundreds of seniors, children and low-income individuals by ensuring they receive all obtainable benefits.”
