The best way to teach your grandchildren about taxes is to eat 30% of their ice cream.

Seniors, it is income tax time of year again when we gather up our paperwork and try to sift through seas of swimming numbers, hopefully, with an accountant to assist in negotiating the waters.  If you are looking for a life preserver to help with your yearly income tax submission, there is assistance available here in the community.   

Marilyn and Beth are once again hosting the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program that will run from March 2 all the way through until the end of April 2021.  These ladies have been offering their time and tax expertise for many years here in Lumby.  This is a free service available to anyone with a low to moderate income.  

One of these knowledgeable ladies will be at the Old Age Pensioners Hall beginning on March 2nd, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2pm – 4pm. Please note that these days are by appointment only.  Appointments can be made by calling Whitevalley Community Resource Centre at 250-547-8866.

On Wednesdays and Fridays, this service is available from 9 am – 11 am again at the Old Age Pensioners Hall located at 1765 Glencaird Street.  This two days will be on ‘first come, first serve’ so no appointment is required on Wednesdays and Fridays. 

For more information or to book a time on a Tuesday or Thursday, please call Whitevalley Community Resource Centre (250) 547-8866.
