To access the service a single person can earn up to $35,000 per year, a two-person family up to $45,000, and $2,500 for each additional person beyond that.
Clinics will run from March 1 to April 28 from 9 to 11 a.m. at four locations.
On Monday, interviews will go at the Waneta Mall, in the old Ricki’s store, with the last interview scheduled for April 17.

For Beaver Valley residents, the free tax service will be provided at the Beaver Valley Senior Citizens Manor until April 20.
Residents must pick up their tax returns at the same place the following week.
Also, bring all essential documents and receipts to the interview such as a government issue photo ID such as a passport or drivers licence, a copy of the previous year’s tax return, or the Canada Revenue Agency’s notice of assessment.
If you have investment income in excess of $1,000, capital gains/losses, partnership income, bankruptcy, or anyone with complex deductions may not be deemed eligible for the service. Also, tax preparation for deceased individuals is not provided.
