More about StudioTax

StudioTax Business Model

Our business model is similar to that of a street performer. You can use and enjoy our software and later decide if the experience was worth it and you can afford a donation.
However, based on many users’ feedback, you should be wary of recent free offerings from big commercial organizations. To use our previous analogy, they are big circuses that send their clowns out to the street to attract unsuspecting customers to their tents and pressure them in paying for their overpriced shows.

Who can use StudioTax?

StudioTax is made available for individuals who prepare their own tax returns or returns for a small number of relatives and friends free of charge.
It is important to note that, as per CRA regulations, tax professionals CANNOT use NETFILE software to file tax returns of their clients. They must use EFILE certified software.

Is StudioTax right for you?

Every year 100's of thousands of taxpayers use StudioTax to prepare and file their returns. And more taxpayers are converting to StudioTax every year.

Q. How about if I need more than 20 returns?
A. The 20 returns limit is a CRA requirement. If you are a tax preparer, then get an unlimited number of returns by using Studiotax Enterprise.
