Sure, but social media tracks you as you keep on using the web. So they know a fair bit.

I am surprised to see that people are so careless about their personal info about that they put them on social media. That is why I never put any personal info on social media. I even use fake name on my social media profile. Just in case you have never heard of a story before social media was created that thief would look at obituary in newspaper to find out the date and time a funeral so they know nobody is at home so they can break in to the homeowner’s house.
I see people put all kinds of personal info on Social media that identity thief can use to steal money from you.

It’s mind boggling how people still think all of their info is kept safe and secure.
Where does social media get your personal info from? Definitely not from gov’t.

I'm keen to pitch in as well if there is a group looking to share 1 licence.

As much as I like cheaping out this crosses some moral lines personally. If you can't afford $15, then use the other free alternatives...

You're basically getting a group together to screw the devs over a $15 license fee

Pay the 15 for StudioTax - I am a CPA and the software does everything from a simple tax return to a very complicated tax return

OR use a comparable software

Profile, $260 for 20 returns

I am one of these people, but being shoved into a corner being forced to pay so my info isn't stored online is a hard concept to swallow.

I have used StudioTax for the past several years and would like to continue using it.

Can anyone confirm the $15 licence includes all 20 returns? (good for the entire family and friends?)

Lol. In every profession there's ineptness, incompetence, or just sheer stupidity. I find it hard to believe any legitimate CPA would recommend Studio Tax unless they're maybe close to 100 years old.

Why not if it does most of the things you need?

Studio Tax? I dropped them like a hot potato many years ago. Modernization isn't a concept their programmers and developers seem to grasp.

Is it safe to assume all, if not most of Studio tax's acolytes are here (and on Facebook or Reddit) defending Studio Tax?

Some people love using sheet. Now, I read Studio Tax is charging their customers unless you have a really low income because their previous model was generating very little if any revenue?

Perhaps you [dinasours] have something on the side where you're charging others to do their taxes? If it was me, I would use a premium Canadian tax application, not this junk. :facepalm:

Been using StudioTax for years without issues, will gladly pay the $15. Like others have mentioned I really would like to avoid posting my info on a web-based tax service if I can help it.

So because Studio Tax doesn't look pretty it's junk?
