Accountants in Ontario are offering to prepare tax returns for front-line healthcare workers fighting the COVID-19 pandemic free of charge.

The Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario organized the initiative as a way to remove one area of potential stress for healthcare workers, who probably don’t want to think about taxes.

The program has support from major accounting firms and covers a wide range of workers dealing directly with COVID-19 including nurses, paramedics, cleaning staff, lab technicians and other healthcare professionals.

It will also cover the returns for spouses and dependent children, as benefits often need to be co-ordinated between family members.

So far the program is limited to Ontario, but the association’s C-E-O says she has spoken with other associations in Canada in hopes of expanding it.

Major accounting firms including K-P-M-G, Deloitte, Ernst and Young, B-D-O, PwC Grant Thornton, M-N-P and others have volunteered but the association is also welcoming interest from smaller firms and its 95-thousand members.

Healthcare workers can sign up through the C-P-A Ontario site, and are asked to apply by May 15th so accountants have enough time to process all the requests.
