Low Income Tax and Benefit Return

Low income tax and benefit return. It is not about "Should I file taxes if my income is low". It is about "To make my income higher, I have to file my taxes every year". Canadian government developed several tax strategies to help low-income families to get money back. Definition of low-income in Ontario differs depending on different situations. For example, a family of six people earning $70,000 a year is possibly defined as low-income. However, a single person earning $30,000 a year may not be defined as low-income.

Did you lose your job in the current year? Do you have a child under the age of 6 years? Is your adjusted family income under $34,863 and you have children? We prepare and file tax returns for low-income families for low prices. Tax filing for low-income households is 50% off our regular price. We work hard for you to get all the eligible deductions and benefits you may qualify for. Please, check all the relevant documents to attach to your personal T1 tax return.
