Volunteer Firefighter Tax Credit

Volunteer firefighters with over 200 hours of service in the tax year may choose between the existing $1,000 income exemption, and the new tax credit of 15% of $3,000.  Your tax professional is able to help you determine which is most beneficial.  In order to claim this credit, a letter from the fire chief or delegated official is required, certifying hours of service. This tax credit is of particular interest in Lantzville, where we have a large and dedicated team of volunteer firefighters.
