Not yet, but still a good find. ;)
Please note that StudioTax 2006 is currently going through the CRA NETFILE certification process. We are planning to publish a pre-certified version as early as the first week of January 2007. We hope to have a fully certified version before the start of the tax season.

Is this new for 2006? Did they offer this before for previous years?

I used Studiotax last year and found it to be the best freeware option. I hope it's available again this year. Definitely deserves a donation.

Last year someone posted a promocode for free taxtron software. It was the first time I did taxes myself and I am planning on doing it again. Would be nice to get a promo code for taxtron again (I think someone got it from a finance show in TO)

StudioTax worked flawlessly for me last year. Can't wait to use it again!

I also used it last year with no problems. Just to be safe I compared it to other software to compare output and there was no differences.

It doesn't have some of the more "advanced" features of Quicktax, but most of that is just gimmicks that can be found on the net for free anyway (ie RRSP contribution scaler, etc). I will not pay around $40 a year to do a mandatory tax return, so freeware was the way to go - and Studiotax was/is a good option - I have already checked out the 2006 version as well and it looks good so far.

Can it do the NETFILE, i.e., submit your tax return online?

I'll let you know when I use this. Im assuming that this software is not very good for complicated returns, but I shall see.

Maybe someone who has used taxprep, cantax, or quicktax can speak up and let us know how this software compares?

I have access to online dictionaries. Didn't need you to translate the word "free" for me!
