Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP)

 PLEASE NOTE:

Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, many Drop Off services and one on one walk-in appointments for tax preparation have been SUSPENDED.  The following communities are now allowing you to drop off you taxes: Birtle, Brandon, Camperville, Hartney, Rivers, Ste.Rose, and Waterhen.  In Carberry you need to phone ahead to set up a drop off time. Please see below for drop off location and times.

 

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. Last year in the Prairie Mountain Health region the total money in benefits and refunds to residents who used CVITP to complete their taxes was $8,019,659.  The average return to an individual client was around $2680.  In Brandon there were 24 volunteers who helped clients with their returns and in the rural areas there were 19 volunteers who gave of their time.

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.

Eligibility for this FREE program

You can get your income tax done FREE through this program if you fall under one of the categories below:

  • 1 person with income under $35,000
  • 2 persons with income under $45,000
  • 3 persons with income under $47,500                       

         Plus $2,500 for each additional dependent

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
