I've only used turbotax, but by 9am I'm sure that you'll have all the answers (posts by others) to see the difference.

Staples had a one day sale for $27.99 https://forums.redflagdeals.com/staples ... #p30591650
Costco had a one day sale for $26.99 https://forums.redflagdeals.com/costco- ... y-2266999/
RCSS had it for $29.99 and 5,000 PCO points back https://forums.redflagdeals.com/real-ca ... #p30705884

I've seen it as low as $24.99 in previous years. That might have been 2 years back though.

If you used it before, you can load your last year's profile/report.
It has a good step by step guide

If you use it online, they'll only ask you to pay once you're ready to submit, so you can still do it with both simple and turbo to compare and submit from simple for free once you get the same return

Does TurboTax standard do capital gains?

Yes. All Turbotax products can handle capital gains and losses. Check out TurboTax Premier - it's designed for investments and offers step by step guidance for reporting such transactions.
However, I don't know how much better premier is over the standard TurboTax for investments... And their website is confusing.

I switched from studio tax to turbo tax a few years ago and had no regret.
I usually but mine from shoppers on their 20x pts day.

In my opinion there is no real difference. SimpleTax also loads prior years, coordinates between spouses etc. It handles business and investment income just fine which is getting you up to the super-premium TurboTax for $120 or whatever.

StudioTax I used for years. There is a difference there, the wizard/interview is rudimentary and then you have to add and fill additional forms and lines manually. Easy to miss stuff especially if there are new or changed forms. Which is why I switched to SimpleTax.

Online - data hosted on to someone else PC. This is the reason the choice of "Download" version.

So buy tomorrow (in QC).
It should be about 35$+tax but with 30% back in points..
If I got the math right that's pretty close to the staples price (after tax). You're better off saving the cash up front imo.
