Income Tax Information: 

You may qualify for help with your income taxes. The government is trying to make it easier. You can set up an appointment online or find a tax clinic that is open in your area. Click here to find a tax clinic in your area.

Remember, Canada Revenue will not contact you by phone or email to ask you for money... ever. Unfortunately, scammers have been very successful with these tricks. If you are at all worried that CRA is trying to get a hold of you for any reason, contact them directly. by calling 1-800-959-8281 in Canada. If you live up north the number is 1-866-426-1527. If you live outside Canada you can call 1-613-940-8495, if you don't have a long distance plan call collect.

Before you call, make sure you have a copy of your last Notice of Assessment. They will ask you for an amount on a specific line and you will need this for verification. They will also ask you for your SIN, date of birth, and current address. If you have moved since you submitted your last taxes, they may need to know the previous address too.
