Mac Downloads

StudioTax for the Mac is only available in English and does not support Quebec provincial returns. It is only available for the 2013 to 2020 tax years.

New this year

The StudioTax team has taken the difficult decision to transition from a free to a paid model starting this year. At the same time we tried to keep StudioTax affordable and accessible. Our mission is growing and we are taking on more and more new talented team members who are working hard to offer you, our valued users, the best possible product and support.
