Taxation and Benefits

Access Aspire Taxation and Benefits Resources

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.

Returns filed by 17 partner agencies in 2018, resulting in $3.3 million in tax refunds and more than $45 million in government benefits to people living on low incomes in Calgary
