Tax Clinics

FREE APUS- UTGSU Income Tax Clinic

U of T St. George Campus Tax Clinic (APUS-UTGSU Tax Clinic – by appointment only)

Registration is now closed and we no longer have the capacity to book any more appointments.

If you did not receive an appointment confirmation email with a date and time, We were unable to book you for a time.

If you still need to file your taxes below are some low cost or free options:

Students can file with UFILE (online) for free: 

First-time filers cannot file their taxes online on their own. If this is not your first time then you should be able to transmit your return through Netfile. Ufile generates the tax return and Netfile (connected to UFILE) transmits your return in a safe and secure way to the CRA.

Since you are a U of T student you can access the Canadian Federation of Students Tax code to use UFILE for free. The code is CFS1981. Please follow this link to register for an online UFile account.
