A Canadian taxpayer uses UFile software by installing UFile for Windows on a personal computer and entering information into the forms, explains UFile. The program generates a completed tax return that is ready to print or send via NETFILE.
UFile for Windows software requires the user to enter identification, income, and credit and deduction information. Based on this information, forms are generated that ask the user to enter the appropriate details. The software indicates a refund amount and produces the return to be filed, according to UFile. The return can be printed and mailed to the Canada Revenue Agency or submitted via NETFILE, Canada’s electronic tax-filing service, explains the Canada Revenue Agency.
UFile for Windows is compatible with Windows XP with Service Pack 3, Vista 7 or Vista 8. It requires 150 megabytes of disk space, a video card, a monitor capable of 800x600 resolution at 256 colors, and a CD-Rom drive. An Internet connection is required for software updates, notes UFile.
UFile Online is another option. UFile Online uses the same process and has the same features as UFile for Windows, and no installation is required. UFile online has the additional feature of online filing, with no downloading, and the option to try it for free before purchasing, notes UFile.
