  • Sign in to a new or existing UFile account for the current tax year.
  • Enter your tuition fees and months at school and click NEXT.

Is your tax return simple but you still want to NETFILE for a faster refund?

UFileFree - UFile for FREE

UFile ONLINE is absolutely free if you are reporting only employment income (one single T4) or income from a Canadian Government pension (OAS or CPP/QPP). You must also be entitled only to standard non-refundable tax credits, and have no other deductions or credits such as RRSPs, charitable do

nations or medical expenses. Your return may be simple but preparing and filing is not. Thank goodness, there's UFileFREE.
