The Sprott Accounting Students’ Association (SASA) will be hosting their annual free tax clinics for Carleton students this March in the University Centre Galleria. The tax clinics will run from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm on the following dates:
Here are some common documents you will want to bring.
- SIN Card (required to file taxes)
- T4 slips (if you work)
- T4A slips
- T2202 (printed from Carleton Central)
- Donation receipts
- Rent receipts
- Bus passes (print the UPass receipt from Carleton Central)
- CRA Notice of Assessment (if you filed a return last year)
Why should I file my taxes?
If you unsure of whether you should file your taxes or not, SASA notes that most students are entitled to education credits and usually receive a refund from the government. In addition, filing your taxes can maintain your eligibility for programs such as the GST/HST credit, the Canada child tax benefit and more.
