CESAX has canceled in-person tax clinic support and is referring members to Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) sponsored virtual clinics that are open to the public. Virtual clinics are led by phone appointment or video call and you must be identified by video call and government issued photo ID for the fastest service. Multilingual assistance is available.
If you are an international student at X University, please contact International Student Support (ISS) at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on their clinic this year.
Please use the search function on CRA’s website to find a virtual clinic to suit your needs at https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/campaigns/free-tax-help.html
If you are comfortable filing on your own, you can access UFile through the Canadian Federation of Students for free. The steps to using UFile are listed below:
To file for free, members must:
- Visit: https://www.ufile.ca/tips-and-tools/file-for-free
- Sign in to a new or existing UFile account for the current tax year
- Enter tuition fees and months at school (must file T2202a)
- Locate the “Special Offer” form in UFile’s left-hand navigation
- Enter the special offer code: CFS1981
(note: entering the code CFS1981 at check-out will not discount the tax file, the student must enter the code in the Special Offer section.)
