  • Have capital gains or losses

How it works:

Due to COVID-19, we are offering this service remotely. Flamborough Connects will complete an intake form with you over the phone. We will send it to our volunteer team who will follow up with you over the phone to collect things like the numbers on your income receipt slips. Volunteers will electronically file your income tax and a hard copy will be available for pick up at the FC office. 

Drop-off appointments can be accommodated upon request. 

Be sure to have the following ready for when a volunteer calls:

  • All receipts of income and last year’s tax return
    • Salary, wage; Interest income; Pension, annuity income; Registered retirement income; Canada Savings Bond interest; Old age security; Social assistance payments; Worker’s Compensation benefits; Employment insurance benefits
  • Rent information
  • All receipts for expenses
    • child care expenses; medical expenses; charitable donations; property taxes or rent; donations; tuition fees
  • Also, if you are married, or common-law, you must provide your spouse’s income and social insurance number.

This is a great service for people of all ages. Students, teens, adults, and seniors!
