>Solved< Tax programs for Canadian compatible with Linux?

Post by wyatt525 » Tue Feb 13, 2018 12:43 pm

Anyone have a recommendation or experience with online Canadian tax programs compatible with Linux?
I am running the newest version of Linux mint Cinnamon.
Thanxs

Credit Karma offers FREE tax service and e-filing but I'm not sure about Canadian :?: You could check though. I've used it and compared it with TurboTax and it was right on.

The only 2 reasons I have Win7 in a VM is for updating my camera/lenses and studio tax (free), I've never found a Canadian tax app for Linux and I don't want to use the cloud.

My recommendation? Use an 'agnostic' web-based tax prep web site. I have been using SimpleTax for years now, and I think it is great!

What you said, darethehair

Absolutely Simpletax. Nobody else is easier or better.
And it's paid for by donations.
Every time I bork the Linux box, I learn something new - what a blast!
If it ain't broke, fix it anyway! Ha Ha!
