Annual Income Tax Clinic
411 Seniors operates its Income Tax Clinic annually to assist low-income older adults and people with disabilities with the filing of their income tax returns. We can also file returns for past tax years! Please note that it is important to file income tax returns by April 30 in order to avoid interruption of certain benefits such as Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS), Translink Bus Pass, etc. To see if you are eligible to participate and for details on next year’s 2023 Income Tax Clinic, see below.
Contact our Information & Referral program at email@example.com for income tax filing services outside of the annual April/May clinic.
Eligibility for 411 Seniors’ Income Tax Clinic
- Older adults, aged 55 and older (and people with disabilities) who are single and earn less than $35,000 per year
- Older adult couple, aged 55 and older (and people with disabilities) with a joint income of less than $45,000 per year
Please note that the 411 Income Tax Clinic cannot file returns for people who have self-employment income, rental income, capital gains, or who are filing a tax return as part of a bankruptcy proceeding or for a deceased person.
Tax receipts (T4’s, T5’s, RRSP contributions, charitable donations, etc.) will be mailed to you at the end of February. If you received a provincial government benefit in the previous year (Prov. Seniors’ Supplement, SAFER, Bus Pass, etc…) valued at more than $500, you will be issued a T5007 Tax Receipt by the government agency (Ministry of Social Development or BC Housing) that provided the benefit. These T5007s are in addition to the T5 that you will receive from the federal government for your CPP, OAS and GIS benefits.
