Community Volunteer Income Tax Program
Protect yourself against fraud

We are volunteers and are part of the  CVITP (Community Volunteer Income Tax Program) offered by the CRA and designed for lower income tax payers to have their income tax returns prepared by volunteers at no charge.


Under no circumstances are we allowed to ask for or receive financial compensation for the services offered under this program and we can also not start direct deposit to your bank account unless we can verify your identity and proof of bank account ownership.


There are many fraud types, including new ones invented daily.


Taxpayers should be vigilant when they receive, either by telephone, mail, text message or email, a fraudulent communication that claims to be from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) requesting personal information such as a social insurance number, credit card number, bank account number, or passport number.


Canada Revenue Agency very rarely will call you for information.


The CRA will never
