I bought a house this year and it's a legal duplex. So I'm collecting rent and getting a salary at work. I've been using ufile online to do my taxes in the past, and I've noticed that they do allow for rental income.

But is there a better software program out there for this type of income stream?

Thanks!

What exactly do you mean by "they do not allow for rental income"? All tax prep software includes inputs for all income sources that the government taxes.
I wrote that ufile does do rental income, but for example I bought a computer to keep track of expenses, do advertising etc. I can add that as an expense for the apartment, but it appears as though because the apartment is 40% of my house, and only 40% of the other expenses (interest, hydro, etc) are written off, I'm concerned it will only write off 40% of the cost of the computer.

So, the question really is what do people use to do their taxes that have a similar situation.

My real problem was although I do know all the tax stuff I had a brain fart and forgot that computers are CCA, even though with the new budget I can write off the whole thing this year (at least the percentage used for business).
