If you have a more complicated return they are still an option. The greater the extra's the more I would recommend going to an actual accounting firm. If for example you have rental properties, portfolio investments that arent held in an rrsp, are self employed etc. Even then H and R will likely do a good job at less of a cost.
One little tid bit that might help some people, did you buy your first house during 2010, theres a credit on your taxes for that!
Do you use public transit? There is a credit for that!
Ya we actually did buy a house and used it to get $750. Too bad all year I banked hours at work and took extra checks every month making me not pay as much taxes and ended up killing me this year lol. I still owe $400 after the house
I have 4 months of NSCC trade school for next year though so Im pumped!
