Volunteer Income Tax Program

The Town of Devon partners with local businesses and volunteers to offer a free tax service (simple tax returns only) for eligible Devon residents between mid February and mid-April each year. This program was created to help low income individuals, families, and seniors complete their income tax return at no cost and is offered by volunteers with tax experience (trained accountants or have completed the CVITP program). 

For assistance with your tax return, or to find out if you are eligible for the program, call 780-987-8300 (available only during mid-February and mid-April). We have appointments during daytime and also some weekends and evenings.
