Description (Service) COVID-19 Procedure for 2021 Income Tax Clinic 
The Income Tax clinics this year will be a drop-off clinic, instead of a face-to-face clinic. 
The procedure is as follows: 
  • Information packages will be available for clients to pick-up at the Library beginning the week prior to the clinic start date of March 22. These can be picked up either in-person if we are open, or client will need to call to arrange a pick-up if we are still curbside only. Information packages include a list of all paperwork needed and the waiver the client needs to sign allowing the volunteer permission to file on their behalf. 
  • These packages must be completed and returned to the Walkerton Branch Library either in-person (if we are open to the public) or call the Library branch to arrange a time to drop off to staff if our doors are still closed at that time.  
  • Clients will still be scheduled for a time-slot where they will need to make themselves available for a phone call from the volunteer in case the volunteer has questions regarding the returns. The volunteer will call the client to confirm the return has been filed. 
  • Client picks up paperwork in-person (if the Library is open) or calls to arrange a pick-up time (if the Library is still curbside only).
People interested in booking a session at Walkerton Branch Library CVITP clinic may call the library beginning March 1.
