Free Tax Clinic

Acorn 2 Oak Youth Services is hosting it’s FREE TAX CLINIC from March 15 to May 26, 2023.

We will be taking appointments for in-person or virtual tax preparation by one of our Volunteer tax preparers.

In order to be eligible for this program, individuals must have a modest income and a simple tax situation.

Follow this page to get updates.


Modest Income

The following table provides a guideline to determine what is considered a modest income. In general, a modest income means the total family income is less than the amount shown in the chart below, based on the size of the family.

Suggested Income Levels
 Family size  Total family income
 1 person  $35,000
 2 people  $45,000
 3 people  $47,500
 4 people  $50,000
 5 people  $52,500
 More than 5 people  $52,500, plus $2,500 for each additional person

Family size includes an individual, or a couple, and their dependents.

Simple tax situation

In general, a tax situation is simple if an individual has no income or if their income comes from these sources:

  • employment
  • pension
  • benefits, such as the Canada Pension Plan, Old Age Security, disability insurance, employment insurance, and social assistance
  • Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs)
  • scholarships, fellowships, bursaries, or grants
  • interest (under $1,000)

The CVITP does not provide training or support for complex tax situations. Volunteers should not complete returns with the following:

  • self-employment income or employment expenses * (see Exception 1)
  • business income and expenses
  • rental income and expenses
  • interest income over $1,000
  • capital gains or losses
  • bankruptcy in the tax year (or the year before, if that return has not yet been filed)
