Nothing is certain except
The tax man is here again. But have no fear, the student income
tax clinicw will save the day.
The University Students’ Council is holding income tax
clinics for students from Mar. 15 to 19 in residences, and
Mar. 22 to 26 in the University Community Centre. The clinics
are free to all students and run by volunteers. “All
volunteers are trained by Canada Customs and Revenue Agency
officers on how to file taxes,” said Geraldine Goco,
the USC Income Tax Commissioner.
Every student at Western must file their taxes regardless
of whether they have worked in the last year.
According to Goco, last year’s clinic filed taxes for
400 students, and this year she hopes to increase that number
by holding clinics in both residences and the UCC.
