IGNITE Tax Clinic

Let’s talk taxes.

March 26 to April 26 | Weekdays starting at 10AM

North Campus (KX205) &

Lakeshore Campus (K Building)

 

Yes, we know taxes aren’t the most exciting topic. In fact, taxes can be scary or totally confusing for most students (and let’s be honest, many non-students too). But luckily, the IGNITE Tax Clinic is here to make taxes easy!

This year you don’t have to beg your parents for help or trek to a local tax prep shop. We’re offering all Humber and Guelph-Humber students FREE sessions at our Tax Clinic to get their income taxes filed!

Sit down one-on-one with trained accounting students and take care of your taxes. Book your half-hour appointment below and take all those tax worries off your mind.

Why file taxes?

Well… it’s land of the law. Plus, filing your tax return often allows you to get back some of your hard-earned cash that has been taken from your paycheque throughout the year and take advantage of refundable tax credits. Find out more here.

Our Tax Clinic runs from March 26th – April 26th, Monday-Thursday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Limited appointments available; sign-up required.

Please note if you have filed taxes in previous years, you must have completed your 2016 income tax return in order to be eligible. If you’ve never filed, we are able to help you.
