Includes 12 returns (plus 4 additional returns for modest income taxpayers) with email and telephone support.
UFile is perfect for all types of personal returns including small business and rental properties.

The 4 returns option is $18.99.

Yes, I am aware of many other products (including the free ones), but for those of us, that prefer UFile UI design. The time I save from learning a new software and able to import data from previous year is worth the money.

Returns are individuals over 16 years of age I believe? with an income. Dependents children are not counted toward it.

Not just with an income but that income needs to pass a certain threshold or it doesn't count to the total number of returns allowed.

How does this compare to Turbo Tax? Just as simple?
I am a Zoomer customer.

Thanks OP. I will buy this later. It is better to buy this online then to go to Bestbuy/Staples.

I tried Turbo Tax once - nearly a decade ago, didn't like it. Ran back to UFile. For me personally, the UI on UFile is easier to use.

I'm wondering if I get this, whether I can use it while filing online (using the ufile site and not the desktop version).

No, that is a different product. Their web version is a lot more expensive. Around $16 per person. But if your household income is less than $20k, it's free. It's also free for students.

Lol yea, we see those posts every year. I have nothing against those free software and I am sure they do the same thing and maybe just as simple to use once you have used it. But I have been using UFile for over a decade now and I am too lazy to learn a new software. It is time-consuming to find all of the forms, and you risk missing/forgetting to claim something. I usually have my last year file open while I do my current year income tax. It serves as a reminder for what else I need to claim/report - this saved me a lot of time.

Since everyone is asking, Studio tax is a free alternative to Ufile: https://www.studiotax.com/en/
Quite straightforward to use, and especially now with CRA Autofill feature, it will not take much time for the average user to finish their taxes.

I would never claim it is better than Ufile, but I hate supporting a company that feeds on and funds an obsolete system of taxation. In many countries, the average person will not need to file a tax return, as it is all calculated by the government agency already:
"Denmark and Sweden, both relatively small countries, operate tax agency reconciliation systems. About 87 percent of Denmark's taxpayers and 74 percent of Sweden's had their returns filled out by the tax authorities in 1999." https://www.taxpolicycenter.org/briefin ... tax-filing

Companies like Turbotax, maybe ufile as well, are the ones that do everything they can to prevent us from moving to these superior systems.

I found the opposite when I transitioned from TT to UF. Of course, that was after a few years of TT...

I switched because TT at that time increased their prices and lowered the functionality forcing the user to move up to the next level product if you wanted similar functionality so I said, "Bye Bye".

It's a crap shoot. I've had years where it was cheaper online and once in a while it was cheaper in store.
