Need Help Preparing Your Tax Return?

The Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) is designed to assist eligible taxpayers who have low income and simple tax situations. The Bradford West Gwillimbury Public Library is an official clinic site for Income Tax Preparation Assistance. If you are unable to prepare your income tax and benefit return yourself, the CVITP may be able to help. To see if you, or someone you know qualifies, please visit our CVITP page for complete details. If you qualify, you must book an appointment to meet with one of our volunteers in order to have your taxes completed.
