Any Canadian Tax Software for the Mac?

I finally converted to a Mac, and happy to be a Mac newbie. Although, I need to file my 2006 taxes, and annoyed if I must power up my dinosaur pc. Does Intuit Quicktax have a Mac version? others?

Purchasing tax software for one-time only use is pointless and unnecessarily expensive. Do your taxes online. QuickTaxWeb. You can file multiple T4 slips, and multiple individuals through this site (the same site I use to file my own taxes). If you must use installable software, TaxTron for Mac will do the job as well.

I've used TaxTron for many years. It works fine but technical support is very poor.

looks like quicktaxweb may be the ideal solution.
I'm far from being an expert with Macs, but I would think that during the past few years, there has been an increased shift from pc to mac users, hence why I would have expected Intuit to have an installable mac version.

Have a look at http://ufile.ca/default.asp I have been using the web based version for 3 years with good success.

I'll put my vote in for Ufile.ca. Been using them for the last 3 years for mine and my wife's returns. Used to be a QuickTax for Mac user, but got tired of their *****ty Mac support, and premium price for the Mac version.

I have used ufile for a couple of years as well.
Works very well for me - great for students or low income individuals because below a certain annual income, it's free.
Otherwise the fee is very nominal - I'm sure a lot less than buying any tax software.

Same deal applies to QuickTaxWeb users.

Couldn't agree more...

TaxTron works like an unfinished product.
