income taxThe cost of a university education continues to rise, especially in Ontario, where tuition fees are among the highest in the country. Fortunately, there are a number of tax rules that can help offset the cost of university as well as a number of social benefit programs delivered through the tax system. But you can only access these funds if you file a tax return. In this workshop, Professor Magee will talk about the importance of filing a tax return every year even if you don't owe tax, and how easy it is to file.
