The DCBA Tax Clinic is a free tax preparation service organized by student volunteers.
Held over a two month stretch (March and April), it's free to all Douglas College students and the general public (with certain income restrictions).
We're CRA certified and trained by professional accountants. Last year, students were trained by staff from MNP, where our team processed over 950 tax returns.
