Community Care Income Tax volunteers prepare to complete 2021 tax returns for seniors who live in Prince Edward County. Volunteers have been trained by the Canada Revenue Agency to complete tax returns for eligible clients. Keep your papers as we don’t start until March 1 each year. By then, everyone should have all the necessary paperwork to do your income tax.

We use CRA eligibility for this program: a person aged 60 and over with a single income of $35,000 or less or a couple with a household income of $45,000 or less , you may be eligible for assistance through this program.

During the pandemic, we have developed a safe drop-off/pick-up program for seniors who wish to have their income tax paid. For people who can’t easily drop off their paperwork at the office, we’ll even come to your home and collect your information, then drop it off when it’s done.

For full details on everything we offer to help seniors live from home, you are welcome to call 613-476-7493 or email [email protected] Also check out the website if you have a computer.

Community Care helps seniors live – safely – at home.

Debbie MacDonald Moynes is executive director of the Prince Edward County Community Care for Seniors Association.
