Thanks, for a typical family it makes the online version the same cost as the Windows version, however the Windows version gives you 4 returns vs 2 with online. 2 is what most typical families will use (2 adult returns and dependants are free) although if there are other adults filing it makes the Windows version the better deal, especially if you can couple it with some kind of retailer deal. Good for people using a Mac or who just prefer the online version to file from anywhere. I've used the Windows version for years and like it.

Now let's see how many StudioTax replies we get below :)

Does anyone recall if the prices for the TD bank version of the Ufile coupon was better or the same as this in the past? I dont recall even if they had it last year or not.

Interested in why you say this, it would be my natural response. I'm unsure as why people buy other software as I've not run into a situation where StudioTax didn't do what all these commercial for sale versions do for free.

I say that because every ufile (or other paid tax software) thread usually gets filled with studio tax reploes, that's all. I respect many people use and are happy with ST but a thread for a ufile deal is for those that prefer to use that ;)

I've used StudioTax for the last 7 years or so, and it's been great.
If you just have a basic return, then it's very easy to use and it's free.
People mention StudioTax because they want others to know that there's something out there for FREE that will do the job for most people.
Perhaps some people have never heard of it. :)

Some people find the paid programs more user friendly, and others are just lazy and transfer their info year to year with the same program

You can actually transfer last year's information to this year with StudioTax.
I wouldn't say more user-friendly, more like looking slicker. People want something that looks "pretty" or "cool" and will pay for it, even if it isn't any better.
As for me, StudioTax looks good enough. The purpose is to do my taxes quickly and easily - and it does that well.

StudioTax is just as secure. StudioTax is approved by the CRA. :)

I know that you can transfer through studio tax year to year.
But you cannot transfer from other programs, hence the laziness

Also, I've used some of the paid programs and will say they are definitely more user friendly. You can easily miss some things if you're not paying attention

Fixed your quote...

I got the e-mail too and already bought it. $20 for "piece of mind" that all my returns are all in the same place is worth it to me.

I personally don't care that StudioTax is free, I respect those that use it, but don't bash or make fun of those that don't. I will keep using Ufile.

Well, yeah of course. Every time you start using a new tax program, you have to start from scratch.
I see your point of staying with something so you can transfer the data easily. :)

Or it's quite possible they don't know Studio Tax exist! Truly, It's beyond me why anybody would pay for something they can get for free! It does what it's suppose to do, just like all the rest!
Oh well. Not my money. :-)

My time is worth far more to me. Ufile has all of my data, and submitting my new information takes around 5 minutes.

This. Been using StudioTax for probably 6 years, and haven't had any security issues. StudioTax is just as competent a program as any other tax software (I actually like the interface better - more old school tax return). Just because you pay for one doesn't mean it will find deductions that are hidden from a free one.

I was going to take advantage of this deal and go online now that I have a Mac but I just tried for a few minutes to import my old UFile tax data and while it says it successfully imported the data, the fields are still completely blank. I tried doing this about 5 times with the same result. Too bad it is so buggy.

Seems to be working great today, so I don't know what the glitch was yesterday. Imported my info from last year and I'm ready to go come tax season. Thanks, OP!
