The Quick & Easy Way To File Your Taxes

By Wendy Kam Marcy

It's that time of year again... to file your taxes.

Spring is in the air, the birds are chirping and all you want to think about is sitting on a patio sipping sangrias. So seriously, there is no bigger buzz kill than opening your mailbox to find that dreaded T4 slip!

Taxes are no fun, even for number crunching geeks.

There is nothing cool I can say about it to convince you otherwise. My BFF is an accountant who loves her job but even she gets bitter when tax season rolls around.

So while we can't make taxes hip + exciting, we can definitely help make the DIY process a little less painful.

Introducing H&R Block Online Tax Software...

A complimentary service for all Canadian taxpayers.

This service is easy to use because of the straight-forward, interview-style approach and oh did we mention it's free?! Yup, we checked it out ourselves and there are no hidden fees.

There are also 4 features that really stood out and made my tax filing process simple and stress-free:

  1. Not thrilled about data entry? Neither am I! If you filed with TurboTax or UFile for last year's return, you can accurately and securely import the data for this year's return.
  2. To file with a laptop or tablet? If you can't make up your mind, it's no problem since you can seamlessly switch from a desktop to mobile device without interrupting your filing process.
  3. You can even effortlessly toggle between multiple returns if you are filing for your family.
  4. Voila all done! Get a snapshot of your Year In Review and even see your Refund in real-time.

Procrastinating doesn't make taxes go away!

The general deadline to file taxes in Canada is April 30th 2015. For those self-employed, the deadlines vary so check the Canada Revenue Agency website for details.

Let's Get Started!

This year you won't have to make that last minute trip to the mall to duck into one of those booths with your fistful of receipts, now you can file your taxes in the comforts of your own home just like I did...

Visit and download the software. You will be instructed through the step-by-step process and have access to 24/7 technical support and tax advice by email, chat or phone.

It's that simple! Now that you are done (early) let's celebrate with sangrias!
