Are you overpaying for help in filing your tax return?

Edit 2: theres something weird going on. Globe & Mail links don't work when posting on a forum like this but when I send the exact same link to someone in personal WhatsApp message it works - this is interesting

Edit: this link should work to bypass the paywall

I Googled CloudTax and it turns out they were free. (I already filed though.)

Paywalled I think.

Nothing interesting here, other than a plug for CloudTax.
The Article was originally free for me on mobile but right now it's not even opening. So what I did was I went to archive.is and pasted the article link. It's a great way to bypass paywall articles (even better than outline.com which doesn't work on globe & mail, new York Times and The Wall Street journal)

Anyways here's the article:

This CRA program offers free tax clinics at many locations for low to moderate income people.

The archive.is links aren't working because RFD's usual alterations to links are screwing them up. If you want to read the article, copy and paste this into your browser:

Honestly with now employers and FIs now being forced to report directly to CRA, there's no reason CRA can't just process the tax return. Then just let us do separate tax return for other sources of income. Make life so much easier.

Hm... i used to do like taxes with the paper forms. Because thats how my older brother taught me. Then i discovered turbo tax. Wooow
So easy & free! Its step by step multiple choice questions. Its fool proof if you know how to use a computer or phone.
