Recommended Tax Software for US Persons in Canada

Post by dualblues »

Thanks for your consideration.

I will most likely have Canadian and US taxes done professionally for the first year back (or more?). However, I would likely attempt to prepare the returns myself (as well). This would allow me to better understand the options and make intelligent decisions moving forward. I currently use TurboTax for my US returns.

What software would you recommend for a US person residing in Canada (i.e., needs to file both US and Canadian returns)?

Cheers!

There is none that does BOTH of course, but Taxact works fine for US and I use ufile for canada.
I am taking my usual break from this site until May. Always too many tax-form specific questions at this time of year...
nelsona non grata. Non pro. Search previous posts. Happy Browsing :D

For Canadian tax returns I've used GenuTax for many years. It's free.
