Re: What's the best Linux income tax (Canadian) prep software?

Might I suggest https://simpletax.ca/. Its Canadian, free, web based, and Efiles the results for you. No need for software or wine. They offer the service for free but at the end they do ask if you will donate so if you can please do, they offer a great service.
