Richmond library offering free income tax clinics

Free clinics return to the Richmond library for those who need assistance this tax season.

The Richmond Public Library is hosting income tax clinics, in partnership with the Lord’s Harvest Fellowship, where experienced volunteers will help participants fill out their income tax returns.

“For the past nine years, the income tax clinic has been giving a helping hand in preparing and filing income taxes for students, seniors, new immigrants and people with modest income in our community,” said Pastor Abe Lagayan, representative of the Lord’s Harvest Fellowship in a press release.

Sessions are 45 minutes long and are offered for individuals with a maximum income of $35,000, and for couples with a maximum income of $45,000 plus $2,500 per child.  Couples must sign up for one time slot per person.

Participants will need to bring a government issued ID and relevant tax slips such as T4, T5 and Canada Child Benefit slips.

Clinics will run on Saturdays from March 14 to April 25 between 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Registration is required for each session and can be done by calling 604-231-6413 or visiting the Ask Me desk on the second floor of RPL’s Brighouse Branch (7700 Minoru Gate).
