Free Income Tax Preparation Services Available for Low-income Individuals and Families

BRAMPTON, ON. (Mar. 4, 2015) - The Region of Peel's Human Services Department is partnering with the Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario (CPA Ontario), for the 11th year to offer free income tax preparation services for low-income individuals and families. CPA Ontario members will be preparing tax returns in March and April 2015 as part of Canada Revenue Agency's Community Volunteer Income Tax Program. Over 1,000 returns were filed in 2014 through this program in Peel Region.
