    Hi Preet

    P.S. — Count me in to win one of the TurboTax software — sure can use the “Premier edition”. Cheers!

    Perfect timing… my family is starting to call… they’re wondering if i’ve bought my tax software yet!

  • Traciatim

    Generally I use Studio Tax ( http://www.studiotax.com )to do my families taxes, but other free software is always welcome, maybe it would be easier to do my spouses professional income with Home and Business.

  • Bikergofast

    It would be great to have a real software package and not use the online system anymore. Thanks for the entry.

    HI Preet,
    Just a mention about Turbo Tax. These tax softwares are getting better and easier each year. If you have a pretty straightforward tax situation that these make it easy and painless. Even if you have a complex tax return and have done it yourself or closely worked with an tax accountant to understand your qualified deductions you should be able to handling it on your own with maybe some of the more advanced tax software versions of Turbo Tax. It may still be wise to work with a tax pro if you still aren’t sure.
    The one thing I love about CRA is that if you leave out a deduction or two – THEY AREN’T GOING TO CHASE YOU DOWN FOR IT! :-)

    Get what’s yours – Use Turbo Tax!

  • Heather Little

    I have an acctng degree but have only worked in industry, and not in Finance or Accounting for the last 16 years. But, several friends and relatives have always expected that my doing their taxes for them is natural, and I’ve never said no. This would be such a help.

    Thanks Preet, and Good Luck Everyone.

    Hi Preet,
    I heard your comments, about the RRSP questions, the other night on the news. I really thought this was one of the better panels and all the input was helpful – thank you. I’m still “on the fence” about maxing out my RRSP’s, though, and will give it a little more thought.

    • Frank Wiginton

      Hi Kathy,
      I think if you heed Preet’s advice and look at getting a comprehensive financial plan done that with project what your future tax rate might be in retirement and compare it to what your current tax rate is right now, it may bring a fair bit of clarity to the situation.
      Now you don’ have time to get a proper financial plan before the rrsp deadline so here is what you can do:
      Make the Max contribution before the deadline. Spend the next six weeks (prior to filing your tax return) getting a proper financial plan done and then decide whether to claim the full contribution on this years tax return or defer some or all of it to future tax years. Feel free to reach me through my site http://www.frankwiginton.com if you want more of an explanation or would like to discuss the preparation of a comprehensive financial plan.
      Preet what do think???

  • dj

    Still no update on CYA?

  • Paul Truong

    Thanks. It’s probably time to try a different tool this time, after using UFile for the last few years.

  • Steve

    Sign me up for the draw!

  • Steve

    Wouldn’t mind winning this at all. I like to do my taxes by hand to ensure I understand it all, but it’s nice to have a software package that can correct me :)
