Yikes, Ufile/Netfile and Mac?

FUdge! I went through Ufile and now I want to netfile using my Mac.

Can this be done? Looks to me I can't use a Mac to netfile?

I saved the file to my desktop (.tax)

Any help is much appreciated?

I sure hope so after going through all this work. :confused:

If you have the .tax file, you are 98% of the way there.
The netfile service itself is OS-neutral.
www.netfile.gc.ca

Make sure you have your Netfile password that the CRA probably mailed to you around the end of December.
What if there were no hypothetical questions?

Okay, cool. I sent it off. I guess the Mac won't open the file thus I thought I was hooped.

I just added the .tax file so hope its ok.

The .tax file is a proprietary format. No standard OS will "open" it natively.

(It's actually just a plaintext file with a bunch of particulars from your return separated by delimiters.)

You can log into your "CRA My Account" through ePass to see if the return was received.
