It’s tax season again! As a result, BASA will once again be running the BASA tax service to prepare tax returns for UFV Students and the public.
ABOUT THE BASA TAX SERVICE:
The UFV Tax Service is a student lead program that gives the students at UFV a convenient and inexpensive opportunity to have their 2014 tax return completed. All of our staff are students at UFV and have volunteered for their position to gain valuable accounting experience. Our prepares have completed Taxation and Accounting Information Systems classes, as well as received training by our sponsoring firm, MNP LLP. An MNP employee will also review each return to ensure they have been correctly completed.
Unfortunately, we cannot do returns for businesses or international students.
Come by the Great Hall (by OREG in Abbotsford B-Building up the main stairs from the cafeteria.) between March 16 and April 10 from 10am -6pm and have your taxes done for as low as $25 for a basic return.
Prizes will be available to WIN for the students who file their taxes during the first TWO WEEKS of the tax service.
Prizes are as follows:
First Week : 2 $150 Bookstore gift cards
Second Week: 10 Starbuck gift cards
Info you will need to start the return:
2013 Notice of Assessment (unless you are a first time filer), Social Insurance Number (SIN), and your tax forms.
Students will be able to print their T2202A Tax Credit Form and bring them in with their other slips.
The T2202A can be retrieved from MyUFV through their Student Information Tab, Canadian Tax Forms, T2202A.
Common claims are charitable donations, transit passes, and medical expenses.
T4: Employment Income (Remuneration)
T3: Trust Income
T5: Investment Income
If you have any more questions, drop by the Great Hall and ask one of our volunteers.
We look forward to seeing you!
