Since DABC’s Tax Aid Program began in 2015, our Tax Advocates have had the pleasure of helping over 480 individual clients access over $1,039,000.00 in tax-related benefits. Many of our clients receive between $300 and $500 per tax return, with those who have dependent children receiving even more. Are you missing out on tax benefits because you haven’t filed your tax returns in a while?
We can file up to 10 years of simple personal tax returns for people living anywhere in BC who receive PWD or PPMB benefits, and often when there are additional sources of income such as employment income, pension income etc.
Together with our partners at Plan Institute and BC Aboriginal Network on Disability Society, we can provide information and assistance to clients who want to apply for the Disability Tax Credit so they can open a Registered Disability Savings Plan. If you open a Registered Disability Savings Plan within or before the calendar year you turn 49, you may qualify for thousands of dollars in free grants and bonds from the Federal Government, to help you save for later life. To access any grants and bonds you are entitled to, it is essential to be up to date on your tax returns.
We’re here to help you access some of the tax benefits you may be entitled to. If you or someone you know who receives PWD or PPMB benefits needs help catching up on filing their income taxes, contact Tax AID DABC at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call (604) 872-1278 or toll free at: 1 800 663-1278.
