Can I install UFile for Windows on more than one computer?
Yes, you can install UFile on up to 2 computers. However, the maximum number of tax returns you can file is still subject to the limitation of 8.


I would like to delete a file in UFile for Windows. How can I do that?
While it is not possible to delete a tax return within UFile for Windows, you can go in the folder where UFile data files are stored (generally "My Documents") and delete the file you no longer want from there.

Please note that if the file you wish to delete contains a return that has been printed, filed using NETFILE or NETFILE Quebec, or saved in PDF format, this return counts towards the total available, as reflected by the tax return counter. If you are unsure whether a return was counted, select Tools on the top menu bar, then select Tax return counter.


Can I copy my information from QuickTax® to UFile for Windows?
Yes. You can use UFile's one-touch data import to copy your tax information from QuickTax® into UFile for Windows.

UFile for Windows will also carry forward personal and tax data from year to year, ensuring accurate filing and saving you tax dollars.

In UFile for Windows, select Carry forward a 2009 tax file from the "File" menu. This will open a window where you may select "QuickTax" and specify the location of your 2009 tax file. UFile will then convert your tax file and carry both your permanent information and tax carryforwards.
