Doing your taxes might have just gotten a little easier.

Canada Revenue Agency is holding a free tax clinic at your local library, through the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program.

It’s for those who have a simple tax situation and a modest income, based on the size of your family.

In general, your tax situation is simple if you have no income or if your income comes from these sources:
-benefits such as Canada Pension Plan, disability, employment insurance, social assistance
-registered retirement savings plans (RRSP’s)
-support payments
-scholarships, fellowships, bursaries or grants
-interest (under $1,000)

Your tax situation is not simple if you:
-are self-employed or have employment expenses
-have business or rental income and expenses
-have capital gains or losses
-have filed for bankruptcy
-are completing a tax return for a deceased person
