Tax-time help was ‘invaluable’ to city’s seniors

A big thank you to all of the volunteers that helped out with income-tax preparation this year at the Kent Street Activity Centre.

The volunteers prepared more than 230 tax returns, giving their precious time and expertise. This is an invaluable service for seniors 65-plus on limited income.

The deadline for assistance has passed and we can no longer accept returns. Contact Peace Arch Community Services at 604-542-4357 if you still require assistance.
