CPA New Brunswick Providing Free Tax Clinics

CPAs partner with TD Bank to help Greater Monctonians prepare tax returns in March and April.

What we're doing

CPA New Brunswick invites Greater Monctonians with a modest income and a simple tax situation to get their income tax return filled out for free this March and April.

Located in the TD Canada Trust boardroom on the main floor of 860 Main Street, Chartered Professional Accountants will be available on a first-come, first-served basis to do tax returns (see schedule below).

“CPAs take their reputation of altruism, accountability, and duty very seriously,” says Mylène Lapierre, Registrar and Senior Compliance Officer for CPA New Brunswick. “By volunteering at these free public tax clinics, organized in partnership with Canada Revenue Agency, our members are living proof of CPA community spirit.”

While CPA New Brunswick is providing the volunteer team, TD Canada Trust is providing the space, as well as making their staff available to answer banking questions participants might have.

“We are thrilled to give back to the community where we live and work by hosting these free tax clinics,” says Sebastien Tinor-Roy, TD Canada Trust Main Street Branch Manager. “As an added service, we will have an advisor on site to answer general banking questions and provide information about different banking services.”

What to bring with you

  • In order for volunteers to complete your income tax and benefit return for you, make sure to bring your:
  • Tax information slips
  • Receipts
  • Social Insurance Number
  • Identification

Tax information slips are prepared by your employer, payer, or administrator. You should have received most of your slips and receipts by the end of February. If you have not received, or have lost or misplaced a slip for the current year, you have to ask your employer, or the issuer of the slip, for a copy.

If you need a slip for a prior year, you may be able to get a copy by using the My Account for individuals service; or speaking to one of our agents at (800) 959-8281.

You can also get your current year and prior year old age security (OAS), employment insurance (EI) and Canada pension plan (CPP) tax slips electronically, by visiting Service Canada.

For more information, see Information slips – T4 and other slips.
