Covid19-Drop-off Tax Package – EnglishPlease review new Income Tax Drop-off Service – during Covid19, as follows:

We can complete and file an Individual’s Personal Income Tax Return. This service is available for individuals and couples with simple tax returns, whose income falls below the low/modest income rates listed below, under Eligibility Criteria.

How does it work?

Process:

  2. Complete and Sign all 3 pages of the Authorization Forms (for each person who is getting their taxes done)
  3. Attach all Income and Expense Forms/Receipts to the Authorization Forms (for each person who is getting their taxes done) (French Form – 1 page)
  4. Drop-off or Mail in the entire package of information in an envelope in our FSWE mailbox (Silver Box by the front doors)
  5. FSWE will review to ensure packages are complete and signed (taxes will NOT be completed unless all paperwork is attached and signed)
  6. All completed taxes will be automatically mailed back to the client this year. Clients will get an assessment directly from CRA.
