Every year, Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) provides a free, community income tax clinic (during March and April) for individuals who need assistance with filling income taxes. These tax clinics operate under a first come, first serve basis and really appreciate your patience and understanding that this is a very busy time with many individuals needing to file their income taxes. Please review our Income Tax Frequently Asked Questions.
In order to assist all students quickly as possible, volunteers at the tax clinic will ask students to bring the following documents and information with them to the clinic:
Please note that the U-PASS fee is no longer able to be claimed as a taxable benefit.
Please note that these Tax Clinics are only able to assist students with simple tax returns (e.g. you have all of the required documents - see list above) and who are only filing for the most recent past income tax year. Students who have more complex income tax requirements or who are submitting multiple income tax years, are encouraged to seek the professional advice of an accountant immediately.
The UBCSUO 2019 drop-in tax clinic is currently being prepared. This will be a first come, first serve clinic. You must be a UBC Okanagan student as well as bring your government-issued identification, T2202 and any T4's with you.
If you still require assistance with their tax return, please use the Community Income Tax Clinic link or please seek assistance of a professional accountant.
