For people who need a little extra help doing their income taxes, there are some clinics in town that can help out.

Eligible people who can receive free assistance from a volunteer at the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) include aboriginal people, individuals and social assistance recipients, newcomers to Canada, seniors and students.

Three places in town offer tax preparation clinics.

The Happy Gang Centre offers the service on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to noon to April 29 downstairs without appointment. The centre and downstairs are wheelchair accessible. For more details, call Ron at 635-3819.
