Filing your taxes

Most every financial assistance or support program requires you to present your most recent tax assessment. If you have not filed your taxes, you will not be able to apply for most services. If you haven’t filed your taxes by April 30th, you may get a phone call from the Canada Revenue Agency between April and October offering you tax filing assistance.

Tax preparation for low to modest income women is a service available through the Antigonish Women's Centre to prepare simple tax forms for women (and their families) of modest income. 

You cannot qualify if you have business income, self-employment income, capital gains and losses, foreign property, have gone bankrupt in the year for which you are filing, or on behalf of a deceased individual. Call if you are unsure. 

👉 Tax filing support is available from March 1st to April 15th every year.
