GenuTax Standard is a multiyear
tax software product for Canadian taxpayers.
The latest version of GenuTax Standard was released
on April 4, 2016. Click here to download and
install this version.
GenuTax Standard software is provided
at no cost. However, if you do find the software to be useful, we ask that you make a modest
donation to support costs associated with the continued development of GenuTax Standard software, as well as future annual tax updates.
We understand that many Canadians are tired of throwing their money away year after year on "disposable" tax
software. The solution? GenuTax Standard software is completely free, and annual tax updates for future years are free as
well. Using GenuTax Standard software, you are able to prepare your tax returns for 2015
at no charge whatsoever. If you need to catch up on filing tax returns for prior years, GenuTax Standard also permits you to file tax returns
for the years 2003 through 2014. However, certain restrictions apply.
The software update for GenuTax Standard that includes
the ability to prepare tax returns for 2016 is scheduled to be available for download by
February 20, 2017.
GenuTax Standard has a simple, easy-to-understand
interview that takes you step-by-step through your tax situation
for the year, assisting you in claiming every tax deduction and credit that you
are entitled to. If you are very familiar with tax concepts, the streamlined
interview feature allows you to pre-select the tax subjects that
apply to your situation. The interview will then only ask questions that are
related to the topics you selected, allowing you to quickly complete your tax
return. Click here for a full list of software features.
GenuTax Standard software allows you to prepare tax returns for up to 20 different individuals for
each tax year, without any income level limitations.
GenuTax Standard software
is available as a free Windows software download from this website.
Income tax preparation software companies must seek NETFILE
certification from the Canada Revenue Agency (the "CRA") for tax preparation
software products to be used in conjunction with CRA’s NETFILE
electronic tax filing service. For the 2015 taxation year, NETFILE certification of GenuTax Standard from the CRA has been obtained.
For the 2016 taxation year, NETFILE certification of GenuTax Standard from the CRA has not been obtained at this time.
Please consult the CRA website netfile.gc.ca or www.genutax.ca beginning February 2017 to determine GenuTax Standard's certification status.
