Become an Income Tax Assistant

Get involved!

Income Tax Assistants help those who are unable to complete and electronically file their tax returns or whose income does not allow them to hire a professional.

Why volunteer as an Income Tax Assistant?

Thanks to volunteers like you, individuals and families in need can gain access to the valuable tax refunds and credits that are only available by filing an income tax return correctly.



  • Our volunteers prepare tax returns for eligible individuals with modest incomes, free of charge.
  • The Canada Revenue Agency and Revenu Quebec provide the required training and reference materials. All returns will be completed at Ometz offices during the months of March and April.

About Ometz

About Ometz

For over 160 years, Ometz has been serving the needs of the Jewish community of Montreal. Beginning as three separate agencies, Jewish Employment Montreal (JEM), Jewish Family Services (JFS) and Jewish Immigration Aid Services (JIAS) joined together in 2008 to form the organization that we now know as Ometz. Ometz is the Hebrew word for courage and is a reflection of the courage of those who seek our support in transforming their lives.

Today, reaching more than 12,000 people annually, we provide intervention, prevention, support services and programs to enhance our clients’ quality of life. Our mission is to deliver accessible, confidential, personalized and culturally sensitive services based on Jewish values. Our staff members are responsive, compassionate, engaged, inspiring—and sensitive to the cultural and language needs of our diverse community.
