CANTAX Canadian Tax Software
The CANTAX line of tax software for Canadian small businesses and tax professionals includes CANTAX T1 personal income tax software and CANTAX T2 for preparing corporate tax returns. Demo versions are available.

GenuTax Canadian Tax Software
You can't use this tax software if you live in Quebec or for preparing corporate tax returns but there are two great things about this Canadian tax software. Purchase GenuTax once and future annual updates for the income tax software are free. And there's no limit on the number of tax returns you can prepare and file (unlike most tax software programs).

Turbotax Canadian Tax Software (QuickTax)
This is the Canadian tax software I use; it has a intuitive interface, lots of built-in help (including a step-by-step lead-through if you want it), and features such as analyzers to help with tax planning. Many Windows versions are available, including one for incorporated businesses.

TaxTron Canadian Tax Software
These Canadian tax software programs for the Mac OS let you prepare T1 (personal) income tax returns and T2 (corporate) income tax returns (fully bilingual). There's also a version of this tax software available for Windows for preparing T1 tax returns. TaxTron used to be GriffTax.

UFile for Windows Canadian Tax Software
Currently this Canadian tax software program only offers personal income tax preparation (T1), but it has the capability to handle any kind of self-employment income and calculate capital gains - and can be used by Quebec residents. Ufile also offers online income tax preparation and filing.

WinTax Canadian Payroll Tax Calculator
Similar to WinTOD, WinTax is a Canadian payroll tax calculator that calculates taxes on regular salary, bonus, retroactive pay and commission. Calculations include CPP, EI, Federal tax and Provincial tax (including Quebec). From HR Club.
