Intuit’s new TurboTax Free had made its way into the App Store, which allows Canadians to file tax returns for free from their iPhone or iPad.
TurboTax Free has no income caps, can import tax info from the Canada Revenue Agency (such as your T4, RRSP investment receipts, etc) with the Auto-Fill My Return feature and covers most tax situations at no cost.
Todd Stanley, General Manager of TurboTax Canada, said in an emailed statement to iPhone in Canada “TurboTax Free is all about putting effortless, worry-free tax preparation into the hands of millions of hard-working Canadians,” adding “This year, we have created our best free software yet, available to more people and more tax situations than ever.”
TurboTax Free for iOS supports the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 or newer, running iOS 8 or later. The app covers all NetFile certified tax situations “except AgriStability and Quebec federal and provincial returns.” When asked about the lack of support for Quebec, the company said via email it’s not something available at this time but they would look into it.
The filing due date for your 2015 Canadian tax return is on or before April 30, 2016.
