EFILE "certified" tax preparation software means that the developer of the tax preparation software has gone through a process with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) to verify that their product is compatible with the CRA EFILE electronic tax filing service. The CRA does not verify spelling or grammatical errors within the tax preparation software packages nor does it test for user-friendliness. We do not endorse or recommend any product over another.
The certified software products below are listed alphabetically by company name. We have also added a column to identify software that was certified in 2012, 2013 and 2014 in order to produce prior year returns (2012, 2013 and 2014 tax year).
