(HIGH RIVER, AB) – As tax season approaches, Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) is gearing up for the annual launch of its free Community Volunteer Income Tax Program on March 4, marking over 15 years of program success.

The FCSS team is dedicated to helping people file their taxes, ensuring they continue to receive benefits such as the Canada Child Benefit, GST, Climate Action Incentive and Alberta Seniors Benefit. If you're not sure what benefit you may qualify for, the staff will be happy to assist you!

The program caters to individuals and families with straightforward personal tax situations (non-business income), with specific income limits:

  • 1 person - $35,000
  • 2 people - $45,000
  • 3 people - $47,500
  • 4 people - $50,000
  • 5 people - $52,500 + $2,500 for each additional dependant

Residents can drop off their tax documents at the Family and Community Support Services Centre (251 9 Ave SW, High River, AB T1V 1A4). From there, volunteers handle the rest and electronically file your taxes. While the average turnaround is three weeks, processing time may vary based on return complexity.

The team can file previous years' income tax returns but note that such returns typically take longer to process. They can also help write letters to the CRA to obtain missing slips (T4, T4E, T4RIF, etc.) to file taxes properly.

Walk-in intake for taxes will be accepted Monday to Friday from 9 am to 3:30 pm starting March 4 and will end on April 26.
