QuickTax 2008: The Easy way to get Your Maximum Tax Refund - Guaranteed



    Prepare up to eight returns per copy at no extra cost

    MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 6 /CNW/ - At a time when every dollar counts, who
wouldn't want the biggest refund they deserve? Canadians using QuickTax this
year get their biggest tax refund guaranteed - or their money back.
    Canada's best-selling tax software makes it easier than ever to complete
taxes quickly and accurately. QuickTax's built-in guidance walks users through
their tax return step-by-step, automatically completing forms and identifying
money-saving opportunities for each individual's unique tax situation. Every
year, millions of Canadians rely on QuickTax to make sure they get every
refund dollar they deserve.
    "Canadians told us they want more value and we've delivered by including
eight returns in each copy of QuickTax desktop software," said Gene Lewis,
general manager of Intuit's Canada tax division. "Canadians who've used an
expensive tax service will save money, and those still using pencils and paper
can escape the confusion and lingering fear they might have made a mistake
along the way. Plus, our new Maximum Refund Guarantee gives them confidence
they'll get the biggest refund they're entitled."

    
    QuickTax 2008 highlights:

    -   Built-in guidance: The exclusive EasyStep(TM) interview asks simple
        questions, provides step-by-step support, and automatically completes
        forms. QuickTax analyzes individual tax situations, identifies money
        saving opportunities and double-checks for accuracy and completeness.

    -   Every deduction from A-Z: QuickTax automatically checks to see
        taxpayers qualify for more than 400 possible deductions, based on
        their unique situation, so they can be confident they're getting
        every refund dollar they deserve.
