Message from Councillor Howard E. Grant, Finance & Administration Committee Chair
It is my pleasure to announce that Musqueam’s auditors, MNP LLP, are completing basic tax returns for members on a no fee basis. This complimentary service is to support Musqueam members that would otherwise find challenges in filing their tax returns due to cost or accessibility.
Restrictions: This service applies to T slips ONLY. T4 Income from employment. No businesses, investments, or rental properties.
How to apply for free tax return
Members must complete three information forms in order to access this service from MNP. Deadline to submit forms is Friday, April 21, 2023.
There are two ways to complete the forms:
1. PDF application forms
There are 3 forms to complete:
- T1 Checklist
- Review checklist for T slips
- Musqueam Members Personal Information Form – fillable PDF form
- Complete digitally (within Adobe or another PDF reader) or print off and complete by hand
- Authorization request form
- Print, complete and scan or take a photo
Email completed forms to Jay Gill ([email protected]).
2. Pick up forms from reception
Members can pick up the forms during office hours from Musqueam administration reception (6735 Salish Dr.). You can complete the forms at the office, or take them home and bring them back.
Tax return procedure
After submitting your forms, MNP will draft your T1 return based on the information provided and available from the Canada Revenue Agency.
MNP will schedule an appointment with you, either by Zoom or in-person in the community center, to review and finalize your return.
Once the tax return is complete, you’ll sign one final form, a T183 form, that enables MNP to file the T1 electronically on your behalf.
Filing taxes can be confusing. If you have any questions, please email Jay Gill, Musqueam’s Financial Controller, at [email protected] or call 604-269-3448.
