Georgian College has partnered with the Canada Revenue Agency under its Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) to offer the Georgian Tax Clinic. The clinic is staffed entirely by Accounting students who volunteer their time and expertise to offer free, professional income tax preparation and efile service to students at the Barrie Campus.
The combination of training, just-in-time coaching and real clients makes for an ideal experiential learning environment for the student volunteers. They gain the opportunity to enhance their customer service and technical skills and build confidence in their abilities while providing a valuable service to other students. Students who take advantage of the service save money and have a comfortable environment to ask questions and become more knowledgeable about their individual tax situation. Students serving students – a win-win situation!
