UFile.ca Quick Review and Giveaway

The friendly folks at Ufile contacted me to help spread the word about ufile.ca (not affiliated).  In doing so, they have offered to giveaway 10 online tax filing coupon codes for the readers of Million Dollar Journey.  It typically costs $15.95 to file online which is a bargain compared to what accountants can charge.

What is UFile?

UFile is an online “do it yourself” tax preparation service made easy.  The online application will coach you through the way when filing out the various tax fields.  What I like most about UFile is that you can fill in all your info and tweak everything before paying.  Once you pay, everything is sent online via NETFILE to be processsed by CRA.

I have personally used UFile to file my taxes before, and I recommend the service.  I currently use a Chartered Accountant  for my annual taxes as my financial situation has become increasingly complex.

How to Enter the Giveaway:

  1. Sign up for the Million Dollar Journey Newsletter (+1 entry)
  2. Tell me how you typically file your taxes via the comments (+1 entry)

The Rules

Lets go over some of the rules.  All contestant entries will be shoved into an electronic hat and drawn at random.  Since there are 10 prizes available, the odds of winning are relatively high.

  1. Only confirmed (new and existing) newsletter subscribers on the date of draw are eligible.
  2. Only 1 comment entry / person (please enter a valid email address).
  3. To be fair to all contestants, each winner can only win once.
  4. Only those who need to file a Canadian return can file with Ufile.ca
  5. Entries will end Sat 5pm EST Feb 20, 2010 and the winners announced shortly after!
-> If you would like to read more articles like this, you can sign up for my free newsletter service below (we will not spam you).

    I’m still waiting to receive my T4.. My work is taking forever to process it.
    BUT as soon as it comes I want to finish my return, because last year I didn’t do it until december! (On the plus side I got a nice ‘christmas bonus’!)

    It’s still pretty simple for me, but with a new business and a rental property coming into the picture for 2010, It will get a little more FUN real soon. :)

  • lewin February 16, 2010, 10:19 am

    For the past few years I’ve been using the online UFile. For my purposes (student, no non-registered investments) it’s been quick and easy.

  • Dutchie February 16, 2010, 10:32 am

    I currently use an Accountant because my situation is complex. But after a few years of comparing my calculated returns to my accountants, I would like to start filing myself.

  • Mike February 16, 2010, 10:44 am

    Ufile. Always Ufile.

  • Guy February 16, 2010, 10:48 am

    I’ve been using ufile.ca for a few years. Last year I tried both ufile and quicktax.ca (online) and ufile proved to be the best of the two. I will therefore continue with ufile.

  • Carel February 16, 2010, 10:50 am

    Paper returns, I’m old fashioned, but my returns are usually pretty straight forward. Would love to try out ufile.

  • Khan February 16, 2010, 10:59 am

    I am using Ufile.ca since last 4 years and love it….

  • Aaron February 16, 2010, 11:06 am

    I usually use a program, such as Ufile.

  • Mike February 16, 2010, 11:11 am

    I used to use quicktax but Ufile let me use their software for free while I was in Uni so I switched and haven’t looked back.

  • Maxwell February 16, 2010, 11:14 am

    I have used H&R Block in the past because of their $30 student program. My dad has been using Ufile for a couple of years for his small business and he loves it.

  • sneeker February 16, 2010, 11:32 am

    i use ufile every year. i’m crossing my fingers because i was kicking myself this week when i realized that i missed out on the early bird discount. only $5, i know, but every penny counts!

  • Antoine February 16, 2010, 11:44 am

    1UP! I’m looking for a tax software right now. It couldn’t get any better.

  • Steve February 16, 2010, 11:49 am

    I’ve used Ufile.ca ever since TaxWiz was bought by QuickTax

  • Greenhouse February 16, 2010, 11:59 am

    Been using Ufile for the last 5 years

  • dnaman February 16, 2010, 12:09 pm

    I’ve used uFile for the past 3 yrs – easy!

  • Bobby Aves February 16, 2010, 12:13 pm

    ufile.ca for the last 4 years :) thanks for the give away

  • Sampson February 16, 2010, 12:21 pm

    Quicktax, but would lov to give Ufile a try too! ;)

  • Jody February 16, 2010, 12:22 pm

    I’ve used ufile.ca for the past several years but this year I’m having a hard time justify spending the money so I picked up the forms to go manual…we’ll see what happens!

  • Rob February 16, 2010, 12:24 pm

    Thanks for the opportunity! I / we have used UFile for the last five years and it truly is a great program with lots of easy to understand bells and whistles. And since we are Mac users, sometimes that limits the choices.
    Rob

  • Brad February 16, 2010, 12:29 pm

    I have used Ufile for at least the last 5 years, starting because they used to offer the product free to students. Wonderful program.

  • cannon_fodder February 16, 2010, 12:33 pm

    I’ve been using Studio Tax for the last several years. You can’t beat the cost!

    But, I wouldn’t say no to a free copy of UFile.

  • YYC81 February 16, 2010, 12:37 pm

    I’ve used UFile in the past, and it’s a good app. The last few years I’ve used Studio Tax, since it’s free. It’s a little less user friendly, but certainly gets the job done.

  • neeraj February 16, 2010, 12:58 pm

    I have Ufile and StudioTax in the past

  • Adam February 16, 2010, 1:03 pm

    I’ve been using Ufile for 5+ years, easy to use and cheap

  • Heather February 16, 2010, 1:16 pm

    Ufile. I also do US taxes and I use TurboTax for the US, but I think Ufile is a superior product.

    Thanks for running the giveaway!

  • Sa February 16, 2010, 1:18 pm

    I usually get my cousin to do it but the past 2 years I have been telling her what to enter so I might as well do it myself. Ufile is actually on my short list of products to try.

  • digger88 February 16, 2010, 1:19 pm

    I’ve been using QuickTax for about 5 years. Quick and easy to do it online.

  • LPY February 16, 2010, 1:23 pm

    Typically I use Ufile now. I used to use Quicktax but Ufile takes care of all of my needs right now

  • sidekick February 16, 2010, 1:25 pm

    I’ve used ufile the last two years. Thanks!

  • Darren Birnie February 16, 2010, 1:33 pm

    I have used UFILE since 2002, its a great piece of software. I’m now stuck doing taxes for both my parents and my wife’s parents as well :)

  • Mike February 16, 2010, 1:36 pm

    I use Quicken QuickTax (I think that’s what it is called nowadays).

  • Michael February 16, 2010, 1:39 pm

    Count me in! I used QuickTax online last year and found it pretty good. I am planning on using Studio Tax this year because its free, but winning a free copy of UFile would work as well.

  • nlegacy February 16, 2010, 1:42 pm

    I have used Ufile for a few years now and like how easy it is to use.

  • Suzanne February 16, 2010, 1:44 pm

    My parents have filed my taxes in the past. I would like to start doing it myself.

  • Chad Boulanger February 16, 2010, 1:51 pm

    I have been filing my taxes with ufile for 5 years now, its easy and simple but so are my taxes, t4s rrsp, donations, pretty simple.

  • F February 16, 2010, 1:57 pm

    i usually file through H and R block in person
    I did file through tax program software last year, it as not ufile

  • Nabeel Jafferali February 16, 2010, 2:01 pm

    Been using ufile.ca for the last 5 years. Definitely will again this year.

  • Janis February 16, 2010, 2:09 pm

    I’ve been using QuickTax since university since students got it free.

  • Breanne February 16, 2010, 2:13 pm

    It seems as though most of ‘how I file my taxes’ involves making a list of what I’m expecting and then… waiting… and waiting… and waiting… for the appropriate paperwork to arrive. Then, it’s all into ufile.ca and online submission. Quick and painless.

  • Gael February 16, 2010, 2:16 pm

    I was out of the country for 19 years. Last year I filed myself (I only worked two weeks in Canada in 2008!) This year, with four different jobs and a few small complications I would be delighted to try Ufile!

  • Sandy February 16, 2010, 2:18 pm

    I’ve used Ufile for the past three years. Before that, I went with a very expensive tax-preparer.

  • Richard Murphy February 16, 2010, 2:22 pm

    I really like using ufile and find the history of past tax filings very useful .
    I would like to suggest that they provide an option to have some scenario
    accounts within your account name for those of us that would like to do some projections using various salary projections re future tax plannig .

  • Leah February 16, 2010, 2:24 pm

    I always filed along with my mom through an accountant, but last year I wanted to try doing it myself, as I couldn’t afford an accountant. I was surprised at how easy it is – I used a service similar to Ufile, and it was dead simple.

  • Garbor February 16, 2010, 2:32 pm

    I have filed with Ufile in the past and would to use it again. It really simplifies things.

  • Allawi February 16, 2010, 2:42 pm

    I’ve never filed my own taxes before. The giveaway would be a good insentive to do that.

  • Elbyron February 16, 2010, 2:53 pm

    I’ve already purchased QuickTax, but I could use this coupon to give to my brother. I’ve used UFile before, but prefer QuickTax as it seems to have better help capabilities.

  • Spudman February 16, 2010, 2:58 pm

    Been using ufile basic software for 3 years and Quicktax before that. I would try ufile.ca, but for two returns it is cheaper to go with the software at bestbuy for 19.99!

    can you save info on ufile.ca or do you need to file all at once?

    Cheers,

  • Crystal February 16, 2010, 3:15 pm

    I have used Ufile for the last three or four years and have now helped the boyfriend do his taxes with it too. Generates a very nice PDF at the end too, which is great.

  • Sushma February 16, 2010, 3:22 pm

    I have never filed the taxes on my own before. I usually get an accountant to do it. But I will start filing it on my own starting this year.

  • Angela February 16, 2010, 3:28 pm

    I’ve been using UFile for the last 3 years or so.

  • Ms Save Money February 16, 2010, 3:31 pm

    e-file my taxes through tax slayer – super easy, super fast, I get my money back right away & direct deposited into my bank account.

  • Michel February 16, 2010, 3:33 pm

    I like Ufile. I was going through a “buy Canadian” phase when I first started using it, and I especially like that it’s web-based, so you can pick up filling it out from any computer, and throughout the year, can refer to what you filed the previous year. I didn’t realize how often I needed to refer to my previous file until I started using Ufile.

  • Chris February 16, 2010, 3:57 pm

    I usually use – ufile! So I’d love to get it for free :)

  • Vince February 16, 2010, 4:05 pm

    I always have an accountant to do my taxes out of laziness… I like to have an excuse to switch myself to DIY though…

  • Andre February 16, 2010, 4:13 pm

    I’ve been using Ufile for the past few years and plan on using it again this year, so getting to use it for free would be great.

  • Catherine February 16, 2010, 4:19 pm

    My Mom usually has her accountant do them for me…but this year I’m attempting to do it on my own!

  • Greg February 16, 2010, 4:35 pm

    Like everyone else, I like the idea of free. That’s why I use StudioTax which is free all the time and it lets you keep all your data on your own computer under your own control. I have used it for the last 2 years and have been very happy.
    http://www.studiotax.com/

  • Dan February 16, 2010, 4:46 pm

    I’m also a user of StudioTax which is free for everyone and works quite well, even with my semi-complicated financial situation.

    I’d be willing to check out UFile if it was free, but otherwise I’ll be sticking with StudioTax.

  • Gen February 16, 2010, 4:54 pm

    I have been using Ufile for several years now, and love it! I love how you can play around with the numbers and see how much your return will be under each scenario. Plus, as my husband and I file at once, the second tax report is only $9!

  • Gwyneth February 16, 2010, 5:05 pm

    I’ve too have been using the free StudioTax for the last few years to file my returns.

  • Den February 16, 2010, 5:16 pm

    I’ve been using QuickTax software but am ready to give a web-based service a try.

  • Pat February 16, 2010, 5:25 pm

    I’ve used ufile in the past when I was a student, but it’s been pen and paper for the past couple of years. I’m now going to check out studiotax as well.

  • Money Bags February 16, 2010, 5:44 pm

    Ufile for the past 5 years. Very easy to use.

  • Brock February 16, 2010, 5:46 pm

    I have used my accountant in the past but planned on trying online myself this year so winning a UFile.ca code would come in perfect this year!

  • ethan February 16, 2010, 6:04 pm

    I want to win one of these ufile online thingys

  • Saver February 16, 2010, 6:07 pm

    My situation is pretty simple so I usually just use the government forms and mail it in.

  • Daniel February 16, 2010, 6:48 pm

    I have hired an accountant in the past to deal with interest related to leveraged smith manoeuvre. Wondering if Ufile can do this for me.

  • birdiegirl February 16, 2010, 7:10 pm

    I use QuickTax.

  • Susan Mladenovich, CMA February 16, 2010, 7:26 pm

    HEY , in response to your comment “I currently use a Chartered Accountant for my annual taxes as my financial situation has become increasingly complex” I had to pipe up and say that any Certified Accountant (CGA, CMA, or CA) THAT IS FAMILIAR WITH YOUR TYPE OF BUSINESS is the best resource. Certified because that means they are held to a code of ethics and have insurance, and the experience is key. As they say, you can’t teach that stuff in school.

    OKAY, (jumping off my soapbox), I used Ufile last year for my Quebec clients as the software I use charges extra to be able to do Quebec returns. Easy to use and I believe the online is free if your income is below a certain level.

  • Rina 11 February 16, 2010, 7:26 pm

    UFile.
    I’m lovin’ it.

  • Sean February 16, 2010, 7:39 pm

    I usually use QuickTax web.

  • Mai February 16, 2010, 8:00 pm

    I am in. I would love to try Ufile. I always did my taxes by hand filling the paper version so far.

  • LJD February 16, 2010, 9:01 pm

    Fab, I’d love to try UFile. I’ve been using the free StudioTax.ca but this year it gave me an error message when I tried to save my file. I’m concerned the NetFile won’t file properly too. (and yes, that is my real email address that I am subscribed with ;-)

  • Lori February 16, 2010, 9:33 pm

    I’ve used UFile for the past couple of years since QuickTax has gotten quite expensive (I believe QuickTax runs about $39.99 these days). I like UFile much better than QuickTax (not just because it’s half the price – I find it to be more user-friendly). The non-web-based version of UFile Standard Edition is only $19.99 and you can do up to 8 returns with it. I’m not sure how many PCs you can load it onto, but, from past experience, it is at least two. (Every year, my parents buy the UFile software and then pass the CD on to me after they have loaded it onto their own PC.) I netfile with the CRA and have never had a problem doing this with UFile.

  • Mike February 16, 2010, 9:33 pm

    I’d love to try UFile. Up to now its been a pencil and paper for me.

  • Frugal Greenie February 16, 2010, 10:00 pm

    Have been using QuickTax for the past 5 years but am open to trying new things. Ufile and/or studio tax here I come!

  • Kody February 16, 2010, 10:07 pm

    Another vote for Studio Tax! Free is good!

  • Josh February 16, 2010, 10:35 pm

    I use TaxFreeway for Mac and Quicktax online. Since both are free to use, I do my (relatively simple) taxes in both and compare the results. If they’re pretty much the same, then I pay to file through whichever one is cheaper. It was TaxFreeway last year. I’d love to give uFile.ca a try though.

  • jensen February 16, 2010, 10:36 pm

    I use studiotax for my taxes.

  • howard February 16, 2010, 11:04 pm

    I give it to a relative to do my taxes.

  • David Jones February 16, 2010, 11:18 pm

    I’m surprised no one’s mentioned GenuTax. It’s a little more expensive than some of the others… the first time you use it. The catch: updates (i.e. filing returns for subsequent years) are free, whereas with QuickTax, UFile, etc. you need to pay again every year.

    I’m not sure how long GenuSoft will be around (it costs something to provide updated tax software every year, and they do not get recurring revenue) but this will be the 3rd or 4th year I’ve used it.

  • greensms February 16, 2010, 11:30 pm

    I also recommend UFile software. It maximizes your income tax return and it saves your information for future years. I have been personally using it for the past 5 years. It is the most economical way to prepare your taxes in comparison to the other programs available – thus leaving more hard earned money in your pockets!

  • Michael February 16, 2010, 11:39 pm

    I use a accountant and sometimes I do my own through the paper and pencil method

  • Commander T February 17, 2010, 12:05 am

    even though I am a tax accountant who could get their return e-filed for free at work, I still want to use netfile, because I don’t want to deal with the paperwork that e-filing involves. I have been really impressed with ufile the past 3 years.

  • Sameer February 17, 2010, 12:48 am

    Ufile – it’s the cheapest and the easiest!

  • Jonathan d February 17, 2010, 12:53 am

    i use Ufile of course

  • Gord February 17, 2010, 1:20 am

    I’ve used UFile for several years now and I’m happy with it. Sure beats paper returns.

  • ashvin February 17, 2010, 1:24 am

    I’ve used uFile for the past 3 yrs – easy!

  • youngandthrifty February 17, 2010, 1:28 am

    I used Cantax last year, and the year before that, I used an accountant. I haven’t tried UFile, but would like to!

  • Peter B February 17, 2010, 2:05 am

    I normally use Quick Tax. Been using it for a few years but I dislike the regressive annual changes such as reducing the number of returns allowed that they have done in the past. Maybe time for a new program this year… Ufile sounds nice!!!

  • Werner February 17, 2010, 2:26 am

    I’ve been going to H&R Block to file my taxes for years (because I didn’t know any better ;p). It’s ridiculous the amount of money you end up ‘tossing’ away, simply because of convenience – or because you don’t know any better.

    Determined to change that this year, so this comes at an opportune time. Thanks MDJ, for providing such a great forum to share your experiences – and to have others, share theirs as well!

  • DS February 17, 2010, 2:46 am

    For so many years I have filed using an accountant – $50 out of my pocket for a service that I know I can take care of myself.

    I have always been too intimidated by tax software but as I am starting to take a more proactive approach to my finances I feel that this would be a big push in the right direction of “financial self actualization.”

    My taxes are simple – T4, RRSPs and student loans – with the hope that in the next year to 18 months a Smith Manoeuvre would be in the works!

    I know I can do this tax thing so long as UFile can hold my hand through it!

    Cheers
    DS

  • bluegreen February 17, 2010, 4:12 am

    Ufile, since my grandma stopped doing them for me.

  • Caroline February 17, 2010, 11:26 am

    I’ve used UFile to file our family taxes for the last several years.

  • joncosmo February 17, 2010, 11:46 am

    Ufile cd software last year. Completed my return and my parents.

    Planning on using the online service this year, so I can always look back on previous years.

  • Steve February 17, 2010, 12:16 pm

    quicktax but didnt realize UFile was cheaper, definitely looking into it.

  • Henry February 17, 2010, 2:58 pm

    I used UFile last year.

  • Mechanonuke February 17, 2010, 3:11 pm

    Filed with U-File for the past 4 years.
    Plan to do it again this year.

  • Al400 February 17, 2010, 3:26 pm

    Quicktax. Although this year I’m looking to find another alternative. I might try StudioTax since it is free.

  • Florine February 17, 2010, 3:51 pm

    I usually file my taxes online using taxtron.

  • Andrea February 17, 2010, 6:14 pm

    I already use U-File so this would be an awesome prize. I already have most of my taxes done, however I’m waiting on a T4 from work still which I want to confirm before I submit.

  • jo February 17, 2010, 6:15 pm

    The coupon code for 5$ off:

  • Kelly February 17, 2010, 7:01 pm

    I file the old fashioned way…on paper.
    Currently, it’s free – the big winner for me.

  • Mike February 17, 2010, 7:09 pm

    Filed on line last year, will do so this year

  • Susan February 17, 2010, 9:58 pm

    Werner, I am curious. When you went to H&R Block did you do the cash back option? If so, what do they charge you for that? I have heard it is a percentage of your income tax refund and is in excess of what it would normally cost to do your return by a tax preparer.

    Susan

  • Jodi February 17, 2010, 9:58 pm

    Have filed via ufile for the past 3 years… very user friendly

  • MK February 18, 2010, 1:16 am

    i filed with Ufile last year, it was great. going to do same this year.

  • Werner February 18, 2010, 1:20 am

    @Susan (105) – no I’ve never done the cash back option, but a look on their website, indicates the following:

    “If you qualify for Instant Cash Back, we’ll give you 85 percent of the first $300 of your income tax refund and 95 percent of the rest. For example, if you have a $600 refund, the amount you’ll receive from H&R Block is $540**. The $60 fee covers the entire cost of the Instant Cash Back service, including tax preparation.”

    In my situation, my return last year was $825.95, and I paid a tax preparer – which cost me $94.45 + tax. If I had gone with the Cash Back option, as well – I would have needed to pay an additional $71.30 on top of the $94.45.

    I know – I know, way too much money being thrown away. Truth is, several years ago – I was in a situation where I hadn’t filed my taxes for a few years. I just kept ignoring it (for a multitude of personal reasons), and when I finally decided to face it – H&R Block, was there to provide a service that ‘comforted’ me. I’ve been loyally going back, since.

    Now that I’ve started educating myself, on personal finances (with the help of this site) – it’s time to break the ties =)…

  • John February 18, 2010, 1:43 am

    Why not use StudioTax? Its free, i have been using it for years. taxes is not rocket science, therefore any program is no different then the others, ufile, quicktax, etc…

  • James February 18, 2010, 1:51 am

    ufile is the only way to go…

  • NC February 18, 2010, 8:58 am

    Last year I paper filed. There is something satisfying in doing the calculations yourself if you have the time and patience.

  • Sarah February 18, 2010, 7:07 pm

    quicktax. But after reading these comments I’ll be trying ufile.
    Pick me! Pick me!

  • Gail C February 18, 2010, 8:25 pm

    Still doing it the old fashioned way, By hand. Takes about an hour or so – playing with the numbers – should I claim the donations this year or wait, and should I increase my rsp contribution.
    I phone it in, rather than mailing it and have not had any issues.
    Cheers !
    And thanks for the opportunity.

    I use ufile…. the price is right for me.

  • Scott February 18, 2010, 11:35 pm

    I’ve been using quicktax online, but someone else has also recommended ufile to me.

  • Nanners February 19, 2010, 12:10 am

    I’m old fashioned too…pen & paper. Then I phone them in. Would love to try UFile as I now have a rental property & suspect doing my taxes this year will be more complex.

  • m February 19, 2010, 3:28 am

    Have used Ufile and Studiotax

  • Vandergrift February 19, 2010, 11:15 am

    I’ve been using Ufile for a few years now for both myself and my wife. Before that I was lumped in with my family because my father used an accountant.

    As my taxes start getting more and more complex, I will be looking at getting an accountant, but for now, Ufile works great

  • Jim February 19, 2010, 12:00 pm

    I used StudioTax last year. I’d be interested to try a more established program….

  • Stephen February 19, 2010, 12:45 pm

    Never tried Ufile…. I have always used QuickTax.

  • Brian February 19, 2010, 12:45 pm

    Me and my family have used Ufile for the last 4 years.

  • chococrazy February 19, 2010, 12:55 pm

    I’ve used Quicktax before, but the past few years I have been using Ufile and loving it!

  • Jimmy February 19, 2010, 12:57 pm

    I’ve used Ufile for the past 5 years and I can only say one thing, It’s great! I don’t like quicktax as much because of the user interface.

  • Brian February 19, 2010, 12:57 pm

    I just switched to ufile last year, it’s a cheaper alternative fom Quicktax

  • Lucy February 19, 2010, 12:58 pm

    We have used ufile since we started doing taxes ourselves and it’s very easy to use. two thumbs up!

  • jim February 19, 2010, 1:01 pm

    I like ufile but I’m thinking about trying studio tax as well..free is good!

  • LindaL February 19, 2010, 1:18 pm

    I have used Ufile in the past and it is a good tax completion tool. I’d love to have a coupon for a free return.

  • Jeff February 19, 2010, 1:40 pm

    I use Quicktax but now it is getting too expensive.

  • Pavel February 19, 2010, 1:59 pm

    Ufile, always Ufile

  • bett February 19, 2010, 1:59 pm

    i file online.using UFile or QuickTax.

  • Harold February 19, 2010, 2:00 pm

    Tried QuickTax for 2 years, then switched to UFile for the last 5 yrs.

  • JC February 19, 2010, 2:15 pm

    Used to use QuickTax, but it became too expensive.
    Switched to UFile last year.

  • Paul February 19, 2010, 2:38 pm

    I have used it as well in the past along with others it seems really straight forward.

  • gene February 19, 2010, 3:29 pm

    StudioTax, unless I get a free copy of some other software (hint hint).

  • Jonathan Powers February 19, 2010, 4:29 pm

    I invariably file using Ufile.ca. A truly outstanding product. Just for the record, I’m a US transplant, and Ufile is so superior to TurboTax it’s funny.

  • Larry February 19, 2010, 4:59 pm

    Sure could Ufile this year. Thanks for a chance to win a copy.

  • Joe Neill February 19, 2010, 6:29 pm

    I have used UFile for a couple of years and it works well. I like that the return is online and I can access from anywhere.

  • Kevin February 19, 2010, 8:12 pm

    Paper, baby!

    I use the Taxman software (free) from
    http://pages.pacificcoast.net/~gthompson/2009.htm

  • Alex February 19, 2010, 8:14 pm

    I do my taxes manually and file by mail.

  • CCD February 20, 2010, 1:29 am

    I have been using ufile for a very long time, since it is the least expensive and provides the most returns per software package. It is straight forward and does the job!

  • Colleen February 20, 2010, 2:39 am

    I do my taxes myself (took over from my mother doing them a couple of years ago) and I tele-file since I have an easy return. This year my husband has capital gains and dividend income since we starting investing in the stock market so it is going to be more complicated since I do his taxes too.

  • moneypool February 20, 2010, 6:28 am

    I like and used Ufile for some years:
    1. it is online, access from anywhere.
    2.it keeps historical filings, easy reference.

    I have one question:
    To what degree of complexity of a tax filing that UFile cannot handle?

  • Carol February 20, 2010, 9:05 am

    I have been using paper returns and tele-filing for the past few years.

  • Shannon February 20, 2010, 10:18 am

    I typically have my accountant uncle do them but it might be time that I start doing them myself!

  • Syl February 20, 2010, 12:20 pm

    I’m old-school: I do it by hand and mail it in.

  • Matt February 20, 2010, 2:21 pm

    Last year I filed online using another tax preparation software program. Worked well, I’ll never do it by hand again!

  • Jared February 20, 2010, 4:13 pm

    I have used ufile onilne for the past 7 or 8 years

  • Justin February 20, 2010, 4:30 pm

    I’ve been using UFile for the past 4 years!

  • Maria February 20, 2010, 6:55 pm

    I’ve been using UFile for so long I can’t remember how I survived tax time without it:)

  • Ilir February 20, 2010, 9:16 pm

    I have used UFile since 2005
