Where's the cheapest place to file taxes?

Get the forms from the post office if you didn't already receive them in the mail. These are free. You can fill them in yourself. There is no need for a tax service unless you have a very large income from multiple sources, much of which is not salary based and for which tax has not already been remitted. Once you have them finished, mail them in to the address provided on the envelope included. Total cost will be under $2 for postage plus your time. You will put in about as much time doing the taxes as in taking the papers to a tax firm and then going over the results.

If you are unable to complete your income tax and benefit return yourself, the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) may be for you.

The CRA trains CVITP volunteers who can complete your tax return for you if your income is low and your tax situation is simple.

Volunteers do not complete tax returns for complex situations such as:

* returns for deceased persons;
* individuals who file for bankruptcy;
* self-employed individuals;
* individuals who report capital gains or losses; or
* individuals who report employment expenses, or business or rental income and expenses.
