13th March 2015

The Honourable Kerry-Lynne D. Findlay, P.C., Q.C., M.P., met today with volunteers from the Deltassist Family and Community Services Society to promote the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP). Minister Findlay also talked about key initiatives recently implemented, including an additional $1 million investment to strengthen the program this tax-filing season, and released the Canada Revenue Agency’s (CRA) new Need a Hand video.

There are over 2,000 community organizations partnering with CRA to lead CVITP clinics assisting taxpayers.

Effective January 1, 2015, certain financial intermediaries, including banks, have to report to the CRA incoming and outgoing international EFTs of $10,000 or more.
