UMCE offers tax preparation assistance

EDMUNDSTON, New Brunswick — The time for tax returns has arrived, and the population of northwestern New Brunswick can again enjoy the business administration sector services at the University of Moncton, Edmundston Campus (UMCE), which is again the “Tax Project” in the Community volunteer in tax (CVITP) of the Canada Revenue Agency on Monday 2 March.

Students of the taxation class by Professor Jean-François Saucier will fill out free tax returns for taxpayers with incomes less than $35,000 or for couples with incomes less than $45,000 and whose financial situation Is simple.

People may come to the multipurpose room Édupôle (local PSL-105) of the Simon-Larouche Pavilion on the Edmundston campus at 8 a.m. on Monday, March 2. To get to the multipurpose room, use the central doors of the Simon-Larouche Pavilion and then down the steps of a level.

Last year, about 350 tax returns were processed by the student administration.

Students have participated in CVITP several years now and the experience has always been positive.

The activity allows students to combine learning studies and the workplace. Students will invest at least four hours of their time in this community project.
