PERC: Tax Time? Help is Here

Posted March 28, 2014
Last year, Ottawa ACORN (Ottawa Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), helped over 801 low-income people file their 2012 tax returns. This project is focused on using free tax preparation to ensure that low-income Canadians receive all the benefits that exist in the tax system. 
This is a major drive to help reduce poverty and build community wealth in low-income neighbourhoods.
