Free Tax Prep

ACORN Canada is launching a major drive next month to reduce poverty and build community wealth in low income neighbourhoods across Toronto, Ottawa and Metro Vancouver.

This project is focused around using free tax preparation to ensure that low and moderate income Canadians receive all the benefits that exist in the tax system as well as connect them to other unrealized benefits and services.

This has the outcome of reducing poverty, improving participation in available services and has an economic multiplier effect that creates jobs and stimulates local economies.

Last year this project prepared taxes for over 1000 people in Toronto in Metro Vancouver connecting low income families to over $2,000,000.00 in tax returns.
