Another recommendation for SimpleTax from me. Really good UI, and CRA AutoFill makes entering T4's very easy.

Studio Tax for the last 4 years. They allow you to make a donation as well if you like it, which we usually do.

Free is good. Can StudioTax or SimpleTax open last year (2016) file by TurboTax? Can the free ones calculate RRSP and medical expenses? Thanks.

I've used studiotax for the past 8ish? years, ever since they got CRA certified, they have implimented auto import of T4's and stuff like that in the past couple years, makes it super simple, ill be using a paid software this year though because i need to do small business stuff.

Just some notes

TurboTax free is not supported for Quebec.
Simple tax keeps your information on their servers.
Studiotax runs locally on your PC.

Does anyone have advice for any tax software for incorporated businesses?

I have incorporated myself last year and I've been to a few tax guys and they're asking for about 1600$ for doing my fiscal year...

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I use Turbotax Incorporated. It's not cheap...I think around $150-$175 range but if you know what you are doing it makes it easier. Not sure if I would recommend someone to DIY unless you have a good understanding of tax concepts and accounting.
