New For 2020

In order to meet the ever-increasing maintenance costs and to support our employees, we are unfortunately no longer able to offer StudioTax as a free software. To keep the software around and improving for many years to come, we are asking for your help by paying $15.00 for a license before printing and/or filing your returns. The single license is good for the maximum number of (20) returns allowed by CRA (20 returns/$15.00 and only valid for tax year 2020 returns).
As per CRA requirements, you can only file 20 returns per computer. As a result, buying 2 licenses will not give you 40 returns per computer.

We are still offering the software for free for users with total income(line 15000) less than 20K and for our northern residents (NT, YT, NU). In this case you will not need a license or need to activate StudioTax 2020 in order to Netfile and print your returns.

StudioTax 2019 and previous versions remain free for all and no license is required.
