Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP)

 

The Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) is a free service to help low-income individuals with simple tax situations complete and file their income tax and benefit return.   

CVITP is a collaboration between community organizations and the Canada Revenue Agency. Through this program, community organizations such as PMH bring together volunteers who prepare income tax returns for free. This program helps ensure that seniors, newcomers, students and all low-income residents maintain access to all the benefits to which they are entitled.  This includes GST refunds, Canada Child benefit, MB Rent assist, Disability Tax credits, Pharmacare deductibles and more.

Fact: income and health are directly related.

Better income can lead to better health, education and well-being.  Completing an income tax return can improve income by providing access to federal, provincial and local benefits and programs such as:
GST refunds | Canada Child benefit | MB Rent assist | Disablity Tax credits | Pharmacare deductibles and more
