CPAs from across the province are uniting to support frontline healthcare professionals fighting the COVID-19 pandemic by offering to prepare their 2019 tax returns, free of charge.
"We cannot thank frontline healthcare workers enough for their tireless dedication and courage during this crisis," says Jerry Cukier, FCPA, FCA, Managing Partner at Crowe Soberman LLP. "Your service to patients is saving countless lives and making thousands of differences. We are honoured to share a token of our appreciation and gratitude for these everyday heroes."
