In 2019, as a part of the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program, Alexandre Compabilité Spécialisé Ltée hosted remote free tax clinics where volunteers prepared tax returns for eligible people.
A free tax clinic is a place where eligible people who have a modest income and a simple tax situation can go to get their tax returns done for free.
2019 was a milestone for both Community Volunteer Income Tax Program and Alexandre Comptabilité Spécialisé Ltée; the first one turned 30, and the second one was incorporated as sole proprietorship practice established in 2004 has grown to a recognizable community member.
For the first time in its history of the practice, Alexandre Comptabilité Spécialisé Ltée registered for, organized, recruited volunteers, and operated a free tax clinic for individuals living in Ottawa-Gatineau region.
As a result, many individuals remained eligible for various social assistance programs, such as education aid or social support, to name a few.
