My System Specs

Default Tax Software

What's everyone using for Tax Return preparation software? I just finished using ufile.ca again this year. It's always worked very well for my wife and I.



Personal goal: "I want to make so much money that I look forward to paying a big chunk of it in taxes."

I use QuickTax and do everyone in the family's taxes with it. They had a limit last year of 2 returns over $25,000 and a maximum of 20 returns, but this year you can do up to 8 returns over $25,000 and a maximum of 20 returns. We have had no issues with the software and it picked up a couple of nice things on its own for one return. Well worth it to me.

Quicktime for the first year myself as well. I've used U-file in the past, but it wasn't as readily available around here this year, and the change to the # of returns you can do made the switch easy to justify.

Pardon me sswilson, are you making movies of tax returns? Sounds like a dry subject buddy.

Hehehehe......

Freudian slip I guess..... Probably because I look forward to tax time about as much as I look forward to having Apple Crap/Spamware on my system(s)..... :)

My mom paid people at Pacific Mall to do it cus she got too lazy to do it herself and didn't want to use her friend's QuickTax.
