Free Tax Software

A friend of mine found out that I always did my own taxes manually every year. He then pointed me to StudioTax, a free tax preparation software for Canadian.

This software is really powerful and convenient. When you run the program, it asks for your province of residence and the kind of claims you will make. If you study, you will claim T22. Workers claim T4. If you have savings or investments, you will receive form T5 from the bank. There are also selections for charity, RRSP, etc.

Once you have made your claim choices, the screens you need to fill are very simple. It is basically copy-and-paste from your forms to the screens. The software will put the informations on the correct columns. If you make mistake, it will give you warnings before you generate the NETFILE file.

It usually takes me about 30 minutes to fill one form. But with StudioTax, I was done in about 15 minutes or so. And that was my first time using it. If I have to do it again, I am sure it would take me less time.

Oh, you can only save and generate at most 20 returns using StudioTax. I guess it's not for professionals. Well, they have more information on their website. Overall, I am very pleased with this software and would recommend it to you if you have not-very-complicated returns.

I am sure it can do much more than what I said here, but since I didn't use it, I wouldn't comment on it. You can download and use it for free on their website.

Amigurumi: Mario Bros Mushroom

I found out that I had a stash of acrylic yarns left (in the storage), and so I was looking around for patterns/stuff I can use them for. I ended up finding Amigurumi , and of course the pattern I wanted uses the colors of yarns I did not already have. I ended up buying another stash of acrylic yarns in different colors. Thankfully, Zellers had it on sale. In any case, my first Amigurumi project was the Mario Bros Mushroom. I found out (too late), that I was doing the red part wrong. I crocheted from the back loop only, instead of from both loop. Hence, the "head" is taller than it's supposed to be. But since I didn't realize it until after the head was completed, I decided to leave it as it was. Mushy I gave this one to Chris, just because he wanted one. This became another addition to his "work buddies", as you can see below. Chris's "Work Buddies" But bad Chris! He made Mushy to be the bad guy (I think). Chris called this scene "
