Anybody using tax software?

I've been using Studiotax for years. Started with them back when they were free.

Turbotax (formerly QuickTax) since 1998.
Impot Personnel (In Québec) before that from 1995 to 1997
Good old calculator and paper from 1983 to 1994

Always TurboTax for me.

Large household, more than one earner, dependants, different deductions, etc., etc. Also, staying on same tax software simplifies transfer of personal info from previous year tax return.

It is not free, but it is worth its money for me.

I have used UFile for many years, after having used QuickTax (predecessor to TurboTax) for years before that. UFile does everything TT Standard does for considerably less money. ~$25 for 4 returns. Less with discounting. That said, the $$ are not significant enough to necessarily switch and learn new software.

I also use StudioTax for 'what if' tax planning. No cost to use, unless one wishes to Netfile or print a return (PDF or otherwise).

UFile for many years. Can typically get it on sale for under $20 for 4 returns.

Studiotax is also free if your total income is under 20k (https://www.studiotax.com/paymentpage.html). Almost all other software give you a free license for similar low amounts, but you still have to pay for the software upfront. Studiotax is the only one I know that is free upfront.

I have used TaxFreeway (the Mac version) for 16 years. It is not cloud-based. (20 returns – Windows $9.95 or Mac $14.95. An iPad version is also available.) https://www.taxfreeway.ca/

TurboTax since ever for me, as I already know their problem areas and I learned to cope with them. Once I even allowed their rep access to my computer to try to come up with a solution. Did not work. Thus, with Turbo Tax I learned how to navigate through the surf and I am not keen to open another pandora box, even one with less snakes in it.

Like AltaRed, I also use Studiotax for tax planning purposes (for me, a grandiose way of saying "calculate my optimal RRSP contribution") as well as to double-check my math on my paper return. My situation is not complex enough to warrant paying for something I'm capable of doing myself.
