Tax filing is an important opportunity to access many provincial and federal income benefits. However, many individuals living on low incomes experience barriers to tax filing, which results in them not filing their taxes and missing out on important (and sometimes substantial) income benefits.
Tax time also offers an important opportunity to engage individuals living on a low-income around saving and financial planning.
