Sunrise is honored to lead the Taxation and Benefits programming in Calgary. Thanks to the support of Aspire Calgary and the 17 organisations who take part in running low income tax clinics, we were able to assist low income Calgarians with filing 7,721 tax returns in 2019.
This resulted in $3.3 million in tax refunds, and access to $45 million dollars in government benefits. The program is an amazing success, and generates tangible financial supports and improvements in the lives of many Calgarians who are living in poverty.
Our tax filing services are free for people who are living on a low income and our volunteers can only file simple Alberta personal taxes.
What do you need to file?
A copy of tax documents (E.g. T4's), that can be emailed to Sunrise
A copy of your Photo ID
Your Social insurance number
Access to a telephone, or computer that has voice or video conference capabilities
