Seniors Income Tax & Benefit Applications

Income Tax Preparation is a service offered by the Seniors Program at Archway Community Services for those who are 55 and older and who reside in Abbotsford.

Trained volunteers help prepare income tax forms for eligible participants and help them secure access to any benefits they are entitled to.

While services are free, a donation is strongly encouraged and greatly appreciated, if one is in a position to support this community-based program.
