Anyone want to buy my extra code of UFile 2018 (4 returns) for $15? I bought it a few months ago and I completely forgot about it when I bought a physical copy last week and used that instead. PM if interested. Thanks.

How hard is it to use this?
I've always went to an accountant ($80 CAD) for taxes for me and my wife combined.

Not much to report:
full time job (vehicle allowance and gas card),
some capital gain through trading,
and side online business

Not to sidetrack the conversation, but can someone please explain to me in what way(s) a paid software such as UFile is better than the free SimpleTax.ca?
Does it provide a better return? :-)
No, seriously. If your case is complicated, or you've got a corporation - you're better off with an accountant anyway. But if you're filing personal taxes - what does the paid software have to offer over the free alternatives?

I've been using UFile.ca for almost 10yrs. The free online version is good enuff for vast majority of peeps. Got my refund exactly a week after filing online. They make small improvements every year. Didnt know peeps pay for this. *welp*

The paid ones research the latest updates, use filing history to maximize on people's returns by suggesting things you may not normally know to claim.

I personally use an accountant for $80 and have a side income, stocks, etc, which is pretty cheap.

you problably mean simpletax.ca ;-)
I use https://www.studiotax.com/ which is also FREE, and the best of all is your information never leave your computer!
you can then decide to submit your tax online or print them and send them by mail.
I'll never pay again to do my tax, Studiotax is SOOOO easy
never had a problem or error in my tax return in 5 years

UFile.ca free online version does pretty much the same shit. Gives tips and offers different calculations, pop-up's, etc. Why are peeps paying for this when it's free.... like I said the free version covers 90% of the situations in personal returns. The other 10% would be small businesses, LLC's or corporations which obviously one wud use a qualified CA, CPA.

Simple Tax, of course. Thanks for paying attention, fixed the typo :-)

These guys also do their research, update the software every year with the latest changes from CRA (which, granted, makes their lives easier by eliminating more and more refundable items...).
They give you an option to prepopulate new returns based on previous years, optimize returns between spouses, and much more. And, of course, allow instant electronic filing.

P.S. I am not affiliated with them, just a happy customer :-)

Filed my taxes myself for first time this year. Compared simpletax, studio tax and turbotax. All gave me the same return, and all had CRA import. Out of the 3 for me simple tax was best, followed by studio then turbo. Settled on simpletax as it was the most intuitive and arrived at the proper numbers the fastest. I don't mind having my info on the cloud though but that might be something you can't stomach.

Looks like the code only works with the UFile 4 version. Too bad, I was planning to pick up UFile 12 as I need more returns for the family.
