In certain circumstances, the cost of filing a tax return electronically through UFile Online is free. Low-income families with total annual household income of less than $20,000 may file a return for free as of 2015. Students may also file a tax return with no out-of-pocket cost, regardless of income amounts. Dependents of a paying customer may also file tax returns for free using UFile, even if annual income amounts exceed $20,000.
For taxpayers who do not qualify for free services, packages start at about $16. All refunds for electronically filed returns are received in as little as 8 days. If a return is not eligible for electronic filing, print the completed return in its entirety, and submit it by mail.
