UBC Tax Assistance Clinics for Students



International Student Development has once again partnered with the UBC Tax Assistance Clinics for Students (TACS) to offer students and low-income individuals in the community assistance in completing their Canadian tax forms.  Students can register for appointments on the TACS webpage, and clinics will be held entirely online this year by the TACS team of dedicated volunteers. The clinic will operate three weeks longer than usual, and some flexible appointment times will be available to accommodate students in different time zones.

Clinic Dates: Daily from March 1st to April 30th  2021, by appointment

How: Students can register for appointments and get more information on the UBC TACS webpage

This year TACS is trying something new. TACS has reserved the final two weeks of clinics for international students. International students can still register for available appointment slots outside of that final two-week period, but will have priority for appointments offered during the final two weeks of the clinics. All registration is done through the UBC TACS webpage.

Questions? You can reach out to TACS on their Facebook page or send them an email.

For general information on taxes for international students, visit the UBC International Student Guide.
