Help others in your community by volunteering to prepare low-income tax returns.

CPABC Richmond/South Delta (RSD) Chapter is partnering with Richmond Multicultural Community Services (RMCS) to offer virtual tax clinics while maintaining physical distancing.  Volunteers will prepare income tax returns for seniors, new immigrants, and low-income individuals and families. 

Event Date:
March 2 to April 30, 2022
 
Volunteer Shifts:
Saturdays - 10:00 am to 1:00 pm or 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Wednesdays - 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
 
Location:
Richmond Multicultural Community Services (RMCS), 210-7000 Minoru Blvd, Richmond, BC V6Y 3Z5
 
Through the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP), more than 18,970 volunteers helped over 407,410 people file their income tax and benefit returns in 2019-2020.  Please join us to increase the number of Canadians who benefit from CVITP. 
 
The RMCS virtual tax preparation clinics run from early March to the end of April from Monday to Saturday.  RMCS has the standard safety protocol of working in the office that follows the guidelines from the Provincial health officials.  RMCS will take care of the drop off and return of the tax return documents of the clients.  Volunteers will work in small groups to maintain physical distancing. 
 
CPABC RSD Chapter volunteers are given the opportunity to participate on Saturdays (sessions running from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm or 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm) and on Wednesday evenings (from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm).  Each shift is either for 2 or 3 hours only.  Volunteers must commit to a minimum of 7 shifts per volunteer and are encouraged to take as many shifts as they can.
 
For example, a Saturday shift will be from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm or 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm.  Please pick your preferred time when completing the registration form. 
 
Volunteers are required to take the CVITP training and RMCS orientation (below).  RMCS will communicate with you after your registration.
 
  • CVITP Training – Friday, February 18, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm.
  • RMCS Orientation – Saturday, February 26, 10:30 am - 12:30 pm, or Monday, February 28, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm.
