UFile launches tax software for MAC users

- Tax Software Leader Increases Product Offering and Availability at National Retailers -

MONTRÉAL, Feb. 9, 2015 /CNW/ - With 14 years of experience providing tax software to Canadians, UFile is introducing a solution for non-Windows users (Apple, Linux and Android) and increasing its product availability among national retail chains Future Shop, Best Buy and Staples. This introduction means UFile ONLINE is now available across all web browsers and devices, and consumers can purchase UFile products directly through the web or at the retail level. Owned by Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, UFile is supported by a highly robust tax engine used by tax professionals across Canada.

According to the CRA, 40 per cent of Canadians file their own taxes and 83 per cent of all returns filed for the 2013 tax year, (whether personally or by a professional) were filed electronically. With the introduction of family income splitting and changes to the children's fitness tax credit and other tax provisions for the 2014 tax year, UFile offers Canadians a user-friendly, NETFILE-ready tax preparation solution for the entire family that minimizes error and maximizes the family's tax refund.

"We're excited to introduce a retail solution for users of Apple, Linux and Android. Our suite of tax preparation products has always been accessible for desktop and windows users, and now, with this increased offering, we can accommodate Canadians across all browsers and devices," says Joanne Birtch, Senior Director of Marketing and New Business Development for UFile. "A stand-out feature of our product is its ability to automatically allocate deductions, transfers and family income splitting or pension splitting amounts. For Canadians concerned about how to navigate these tax situations, our software eliminates any guesswork."
