Canadian Tax Forums And Websites

by Tax Guy - Burlington Accountant on June 24, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post

I enjoy writing on this blog and participating in discussion group about income tax and financial planning. I have the opportunity to discuss what I find interesting and hopefully you find this interesting as well.

Quest For Four Pillars posted a short list of financial discussion forums the other day that got me thinking. What forums or other sites do I follow and or participate in?

Here is the list of the websites and forums I frequent.

1. DT Max Knowledge Base (No longer available) – This is a the on-line help site for the Dr. Tax software. It is also a good general reference for income tax topics. The sites’ Government Documentation section provides line by line descriptions of each line on your income tax return.

2. BDO Dunwoody’s Tax Bulletins – Once or twice a month, BDO puts out some timely tax articles on a variety of general subjects. Their site also has tax articles and tax fact sections that are useful as well.

3. Intuit’s Communities – These are on-line forums for users of Quicken,
TurboTax and QuickBooks Canada. You don’t need to own the software to participate and many of these sites are loaded with professionals.

4. Red Flag Deals – RFD has a financial forum where people ask tons of questions. I periodically look through to get ideas for my articles. Be warded that there is a lot of poor advice on this board when it comes to tax.

What forums or discussion groups do you find helpful or participate in?
