• Volunteer Income Tax Program Okotoks

Community Volunteer Income Tax Program

This is a free service managed by the Okotoks Family Resource Centre and is a collaboration between FCSS and the Canada Revenue Agency. Volunteers are screened through the Okotoks Volunteer Resource Centre and are trained by the Canada Revenue Agency to prepare simple tax returns (via e-file when possible).

The program is available from the beginning of March until the end of April each year. While most returns are done during tax season, volunteers are available throughout the year to assist.
