  1. I have been using Ufile since almost the very beginning, never remembered the customer support has been so appalling. I had a strange data entry issue and called their support line and waited over 40 minutes and still couldn’t get through! They didn’t even tell you the estimated wait time, and the number they gave is a long distance Quebec number. They started promoting PRO which gets you jump the queue, but is one question worth that money? is it a new way of money grab? I am seriously considering to switch because of the deteriorating support.

    • Hello Jason,

      There are certain times during the day that the call volume is higher than usual. You can always contact the support team by emailing them at help@ufile.ca. If the automated email does not respond to your question, please reply to that email by following the instructions in the email. You also have acces to the virutal agent: https://www.ufile.ca/help/ask-ufile at all times.

  2. Stay away from Ufile. No phone support, no email support – you are on your own. Even if you paid for 3 tax returns – it allows you to submit only 2. No way to reach anybody there.

    • Hello Alex,
      UFile is the #1 software in Canada. It is friendly and easy to use. The program will help you to produce your own tax returns, however when you have any issue UFile support will be eager to help you for unlimited requests.

      • You are wrong, Antoine. Ufile 2019 has major installation and calculation problems. A visit to your online help forum shows that Ufile is not addressing the problem. I just downloaded it last night, updated tonight, and it still doesn’t work right. Trying to repair the installation generates error 1612, which indicates your program is missing data.

        • Hello Roger Dignan,

          Please find the following: Error – 1612 – The installation source of this product is not available
          The error 1612 can appear if you try to install the software, but it is already installed.

          A. If you bought a second software or additional returns, you do not need to reinstall it. You only need to add the activation code to the counter as follows:

          1. Run your UFile program.
          2. Go to “Settings” menu from the top-right corner, and select “Tax return counter”.
          3. Click on the “Add extra returns” button.
          4. Enter your activation key, and then click “OK”.
          5. You should see your tax return counter increase accordingly.

          B. If you bought only one software UFile, please remove and reinstall it.

          To remove UFile for Windows follow these instructions:

          1. Go to “Start”.
          2. Go to “Settings”.
          3. Select “Control Panel”.
          4. In the “Control Panel”, select “Programs and Features”.
          5. Locate UFile 20xx and click “Remove”.
          6. Locate UFile Updater 20xx and click “Remove”.

          xx = the last two digits of the tax year

          Reinstall the software.
