Guides you through investment income and sales.

If you have investment income from:

  • Stocks, bonds  & mutual fund investments
  • Employee stock purchase plans
  • Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) contributions
  • Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA)
  • Guaranteed Investment Certificates (GICs)

TurboTax can help you get the most from them at tax time.


Helps you make the most of your rental properties.

TurboTax Premier Online Edition locates all eligible rental property expenses, like:

  • Mortgage interest
  • Repair or maintenance costs
  • Advertising expenses
  • Insurance fees
  • Costs for someone to care for your rental properties

So if you own a second home you rent out, or are simply renting out a single room in your house, TurboTax can help maximize your deductions.

Helps optimize pension and RRSP income.

The TurboTax Pension Income Splitting Optimizer advises you on how to best distribute your pension income (up to 50% of it), so that you and your spouse or common-law partner pay less in taxes. 

While the RRSP Optimizer lets you see how different RRSP contribution amounts affect your refund (or tax owing). It helps you determine the optimum RRSP contribution for you and your spouse.

Alerts you to common audit triggers & provides audit support.

Before you file your return, Audit Risk Alert lets you know if the tax claims you've entered may trigger a CRA audit.

So you can go back and make any changes to your return and feel confident about the deductions you're claiming.

And you can have professional representation available in case of a CRA audit by adding Audit Defence to your product. Additional fees and restrictions apply.2
