if it's nothing complicated ufile is a good choice, easy and straightforward. H&R block charges like 50-70 bucks to do it for you don't they?

It's been extended a days to replace the days the CRA was offline due to HeartBleed. The exact number escapes me (and the article below).

CRA extends tax filing deadline amid chaos created by Heartbleed bug - The Globe and Mail

Competent tax preparers will calculate your tax return the exact same way. Whether H&R block was competent in doing yours, only a tax professional would know. To each their own, but generally they are not very reliable. Are you certain you weren't supposed to get back $6k instead? Or maybe they over calculated and you should only get back $2k, thus making you owe? I'm not saying you need to worry, but just pointing out that getting a cheque in the mail doesn't mean they did a good job (or bad).
This is correct. Someone who gets you the highest refund is not necessarily the best tax preparer.

As someone with a strong financial background, I will say this..

For the majority of the population, H&R Block will be sufficient and do a good job with your taxes. H&R Block will fuck up often but MORE often you make so little money CRA won't care or they just won't catch it.

If you don't have a clue about our tax system, go see H&R Block. If you make real money, go see an accountant.

You're judging them based on how much you're getting back. We're simply pointing out to you that that is not an indication of whether they're reliable or not. Nobody's jumping anyone, but rather trying to keep people informed.

incorrect, im judging them based on the fact that they assisted me in retrieving some of that money. they helped me out, and helped me understand what i may be entitled too. explained rrsp deductions, TFSA, first time home owner usage for that, my penalties should i need the money for other things. but it wasn't about the money, it was about the professionalism i felt. they knew what they were doing, and were very nice about it. whatever IMO, not bad people to deal with, and helped me out a bunch, so if your not dealing with hundreds of thousands of dollars its not the worst choice you can make.

NETFILE - Certified Software for the 2014 NETFILE Program (2013 tax return)

Personally I recommend Studio Tax. If you prefer web based there's a new one this year called Simple Tax that wasn't bad.

decided to do my taxes early this year so as soon i got my T4 i punched in the numbers with turbotax (great site to do it on, ive been using that site since i was in high school)

2.5k owing. WTF??? It's my first tax year where i wasn't a student. Every year i get money back, last year i got 2k.

I don't even make much... is my employer not deducing enough tax every pay cheque???
