Downsizing is something you see often when it comes to packages of cereal or detergent. But it’s less common with software.
That’s why you might be surprised to buy QuickTax Standard for the 2007 tax year and find you could do only two returns for income over $25,000. Last year, you could do six returns. The price stayed the same, but you could apply for a $10 mail rebate if you filed your return electronically.
After I did a column last Saturday on Intuit Canada’s sneaky move, I heard from many people who had quit QuickTax and found alternative tax software.
