Workshop 1: Know Your Money

Don't know how to file taxes? Want to know how to get a bigger tax refund?

In this workshop, you will learn the benefits of filing taxes, why and how to file your taxes, and what is non-taxable income. For those considering post-secondary education, you will learn about deductions, credits, and special rules for students.

 

Workshop 3: Managing Debt, Making Credit Work for You
