Vounteer Income Tax Program

Volunteer Income Tax Program

The Town of Devon participates in the Canadian Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) to offer a free tax service (simple tax returns only) for eligible Devon residents betwen March and April each year. This program was created to help low income individuals, families, and seniors complete their income tax return at no cost. It is very important that you bring all relevant paperwork with you, otherwise our volunteers will not be able to provide support. If you are claiming medical, you must tally them up before you come to your appointment. 

For more information why doing your taxes is important, follow this link to the Money Mentors website.

There are a few different options for residents, but make sure that you are eligible:

  • registered retirement savings plans (RRSP's)
  • support payments
  • scholarships, fellowships, bursaries or grants

  • are self-employed or have employment expenses
  • have business or rental income and expenses
