Almost 7,600 people saved hundreds of thousands of dollars by using the Local 832 income tax preparation service

June 5, 2006
UFCW Local 832 members and their families kept George Combiadakis (left) extremely busy again this year. From mid-February until the end of April approximately 7,600 people utilized the income tax preparation service that Local 832 provides for the members. This was an increase of approximately 400 more people using the tax service this year. It seems obvious that one of the main reasons for the popularity of the UFCW Local 832 tax preparation service is the cost. The price charged by the union to complete a tax return and file it electronically is far less than any other tax preparation place. For example, members with seven informational slips or less (T4s, day care receipts, etc.) paid only $15. President Ziegler remarked, "It is a good service at a good price and it definitely shows in the number of members taking advantage of the service at the our Winnipeg location as well as our out-of-town locations." The out-of-town locations also saw an increase in numbers this year, especially the Brandon office. Besides the Winnipeg location, the union had tax offices in Brandon, Flin Flon, Neepawa, Russell, Steinbach and Thompson. George Combiadakis will be back next year for his 19th year assisting Local 832 members with their tax returns.
