Hi Everyone,

Tax Season is over, but if you missed your chance to get your taxes done for free, don’t worry, the CASS CVITP runs year-round, Contact the Resource Facilitator at (403)283-0611 to make an appointment. If you have any questions about phone calls, emails, texts, etc., that say that they are from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), please call 1-800-959-8281 to ask about your taxes. There are a lot of scams going on this tax season, always go to the source, and don’t give any information to anyone before you contact to someone you trust, and the CRA.
