UFile 2009: MaxBack Refund Analyzer Ensures Best Possible Refund

Exciting New Tax Credits Enhance UFile's Optimization Capability

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 5, 2010) - Dr Tax Software, the makers of UFile.ca and UFile for Windows, today launched its product suite for the 2009 tax season to deliver value and reliability, both backed by its no-nonsense Accuracy and Satisfaction Guarantee. UFile users who have taken advantage of the Home Renovation Tax Credit benefit from inclusion of this important tax break within the software's optimization tool, the MaxBack Refund Analyzer. The new First-Time Home Buyers' Tax Credit has also been incorporated into the MaxBack feature, giving Canadians confidence of receiving the best possible refund.

Canada's favourite online tax software makes it easier than ever to complete taxes quickly and accurately. UFile allows users to easily create a comprehensive, custom interview that provides step-by-step direction and quickly moves users to the next appropriate screen while the software watches for potential errors or missing information. This intuitive QuikClik interview system also provides one-click access to any input screen so editing, updating and reviewing is no problem at all.

"UFile provides consumers with the same tax engine used to power our professional tax software products," says Malcolm Campbell, VP and General Manager of Dr Tax Software, makers of UFile tax products. "Together with our MaxBack Refund Analyzer and the Accuracy and Satisfaction Guarantee, Canadians can be confident they are getting the best product for the best price."

UFile 2009 Highlights:

- The QuikClik Interview avoids asking unnecessary questions. It uses simple language and provides step-by-step help to guide the consumer through entering their tax information. Once entered, UFile analyzes the tax records of the family as a whole and identifies money-saving opportunities while double-checking for accuracy and completeness.

- With a single click, UFile's MaxBack Refund Analyzer prepares tax returns for all family members and ensures each pays the least amount of tax possible. It reviews all data entered and optimizes it to ensure the best refund possible.

- Pension Splitting/Home Renovation Tax Credit/First-Time Home Buyers Tax Credit: UFile has solved these tricky problems for hundreds of thousands of Canadians. UFile`s unique MaxBack Refund Analyzer takes into account all tax deductions and credits to propose the best distribution of pension income, the home improvement tax credit and the home buyers credit to optimize tax savings.

- Accuracy and Satisfaction Guarantee: UFile stands behind this guarantee to ensure that UFile users will not pay any interest and penalties incurred, in the unlikely event that calculations are incorrect. Thanks to UFile's Satisfaction Guarantee, users will be happy with their UFile experience, or they get their money back.
