Libraries offering free income tax filing for eligible residents

To The Haldimand Press

HALDIMAND—Haldimand County Public Library, in partnership with the Canada Revenue Agency, is offering free income tax filing services by trained volunteers as part of the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program.

This tax program will be offered as a drop-off only service at the Caledonia, Jarvis, Cayuga, Hagersville, and Selkirk branches. The free tax program will run from March 1 to April 9, 2021.

Residents interested in this free service are asked to call Haldimand County Public Library at 289-674-0400 or visit one of the branches listed above. Once participants drop off materials and complete necessary forms, all materials will be delivered to a volunteer by library staff. Upon completion of the tax files, participants will be called back to the library to pick up their completed forms. If any questions should arise during the process a volunteer will contact participants by phone.

Individuals seeking further information about tax clinics may contact Katrina Krupicz, Community Outreach Coordinator, Haldimand County Public Library at 905-318-5932 ext. 6552 or kkrupicz@haldimandcounty.on.ca.

Every year this tax program has run, a new library has been added to offer the service. This is the Cayuga Library’s first year participating.

The Dunnville Library is now the only library not participating; however, Dunnville residents can access the program at the Dunnville Salvation Army.

· A single, with an annual income of $30,000 or less;
