(Updated May 5, 2021) The Town of Edson Civic Centre is now closed to the public. The Town of Edson FCSS Community Volunteer Income Tax Program is no longer welcoming individuals to complete their taxes by appointment.
To complete taxes through our drop-off system please email Ali at email@example.com and she will provide you with a form that needs to be filled out. These forms along with your tax information can be dropped off at the Town of Edson drop-box anytime. The taxes will be filed and you will be called when they are completed. We need some important information such as your date of birth and address, so please do not drop-off your taxes without filling out the form and attaching it to your taxes. The link to the form can be found above.
Income thresholds are as follows: 1 person income is $35,000 or less, 2 person income is $45,000 or less, 3 person income is $47,500 or less and each additional person adds $2,500 thereafter. We understand that it has been a difficult year, so if you have any questions about the income threshold please call Ali at 780-723-8616. We accept simple tax returns only, which means no business income, capital gains, depreciation or recent deaths. This program serves mainly low income, seniors, students, persons with disabilities. A current tax return is required for federal benefits to continue without disruption, such as government pensions and child tax benefits, so please look to having your taxes done as soon as you have received all of your T-forms.
We will not be accepting walk-ins. Please call 780-723-8616 to make an appointment, inquire about drop-offs or for more information. We look forward to helping our community again this year! Thank you to our amazing CVITP volunteers for sticking with us through these challenging times, we couldn’t do it without you.
