CRA Community Volunteer Income Tax Program 2015

Community Volunteer Income Tax Program

The objective of the CVITP is to help eligible individuals who are not able to prepare their income tax and benefit returns by themselves. The CVITP is a partnership between the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and community organizations which host tax preparation clinics and arrange for volunteers to prepare tax returns for eligible individuals. The CRA provides training, tax software, and a network of CVITP coordinators across the country to help the community organizations and volunteers deliver the program.

The CVITP is a source of pride for the CRA. Each year together with many volunteers and community organizations, we help over half a million Canadians file their tax returns.  Every year, the Langara Accounting Club coordinates with the CVITP to ensure all students can get trained in preparing individual income tax returns for the opportunity to volunteer for this worthy cause.
