It’s that time again…Tax Season

Did you know that WoodGreen offers a FREE income tax clinic? In partnership with the Canada Revenue Agency’s Community Volunteer Income Tax Program, WoodGreen’s Income Tax Clinic prepares returns for clients who have a low income and a simple tax situation. If you are a senior, student, newcomer, are unemployed, or have a low income, you may be eligible for tax services.

Starting February 1st, you can book an appointment for March or April. Tax clinics are offered at 3 main sites: 815 Danforth Avenue (3rd Floor), 1533 Victoria Park Avenue, and a seniors only clinic at 840 Coxwell Avenue (3rd Floor) and satellite sites.

Our service has impact! Last year WoodGreen served more than 4000 clients with the help of over 150 volunteers at multiple locations. Clients accessed over $6 million worth of refunds and benefits.
