Having switched over from windows earlier this past summer I always did my taxes by purchasing a CD at my local store but i have been looking lately and cannot find one for MAC that I can purchase and install on my MacPro. Surely after buying a $1000 dollar plus laptop I can at least do my taxes by loading in a cd and e-filing. Is there something I a missing.
I file my taxes online at QuickTaxWeb.ca. Been using this service since at least 2004 that I can remember. Using software you actually load onto your Mac is the past, and has been for a long while. And to alleviate any concerns, it's secure.

Another vote for UFile.ca here. I've used it for the past two years and will use it again this year. When we have to file US returns (depends on the year) I use TaxAct.com, which is very good.
On a side note: our first two years back in Canada, my husband's company paid for us to have Ernst Young do our taxes and THAT took longer than me doing it myself with UFile!! They have an absolutely DREADFUL online system to input all your data - it's not at all Mac-friendly, barely working with Firefox and not at all with Safari. I'd input data and it would disappear regularly. Then, to top it all off, they sent us the completed forms (which WE had to print out) and they were scanned images made into PDFs. Half the pages were crooked. It was ludicrous. You'd think whatever they were used on their end would at least have PDF output. Granted, after all the hair-pulling, the returns themselves appeared to be well done.

Another vote for ufile in the inevitable annual tax software thread.
