Richmond Public Library, in partnership with the Lord’s Harvest Fellowship, is again offering free income tax clinics at the Brighouse branch.

Trained volunteers will safely help community members with low income file their income tax returns. Due to the pandemic, this year’s clinics follow a drop-off and pick-up format. 

To qualify for this free service, single persons must have a maximum income of $35,000 and a couple must have a maximum income of $45,000 plus $2,500 per child. Couples will need to sign up for one appointment time for each person. 

Interested participants can register for a session by calling 604-231-6413 or visiting the Brighouse branch (7700 Minoru Gate) and filling out forms prior to the scheduled appointment. Government issued ID and all relevant tax slips such as T4, T5 and Canada Child Benefit slips must also be brought to the appointment. All print documents will be returned to the participant at their pick-up time. 

The clinics run on Saturdays from March 6 to April 24 (no sessions on April 3) with drop-off appointments offered between 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Drop-off appointments on March 6 will be between 12:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. 

“We are grateful and blessed that for the past ten years, our income tax clinic has been helpful in extending hands in preparing and filing income taxes for students, seniors, new immigrants and people with modest income in our community.” said Pastor Abe Lagayan, representative of the Lord’s Harvest Fellowship.
