Just an update on UFile.
There have been two updates and the previous update has made it
impossible to update UFile from inside the programme. The fix for this
is to download the full and most recent version as found in the
UFile->Windows FAQ. This updates the package really well.
Also, another tip/warning, some/most of the screen do not draw properly;
the simple fix: minimize and then maximize the window in UFile and this
will force a re-draw with all of the lines appearing normally -- you
should do this with every window so that you do not miss any of the
Otherwise, everything else works as it should along with e-filing. We
have thus far submitted 5 accounts through e-file.
NB: I am not affiliated with UFile at all and do not guarantee that any
version or updated versions will definitely work on your setup. I am
just expressing that this version works on my setup and my family is
using it for filing tax services in Canada. UFile (Dr. Tax) does not
support UFile being run on linux.
