Did your grandma give you a cheque to help pay your tuition last semester? Or maybe your parents paid your way so you could go to school last year.
Did you know that as a student, you can transfer your unused Tuition and Education credits?
It’s your chance to give one of the people that’s helped you out, such as your parent, grandparent, spouse or common-law partner, or their parent or grandparent, a little payback by giving them a much-appreciated tax break – especially appropriate if they’ve helped you out with your tuition or other expenses.

Everyone’s travel tastes are different. For some, it’s the rush of venturing to an unknown destination in search of adventure and mystery. For me, it’s a time to relax, recharge and reflect. But whether it’s a hidden waterfall in the middle of nowhere, a secluded private beach, or a city you’ve never visited, it’s always a good idea to travel with a helpful companion.
You don’t have to strain your eyes or your brain trying to read numbers in little boxes and manually transmit them into your tax software program – TurboTax lets you import electronic versions of your tax slips and other relevant data directly into your tax return!
That saves you time in itself. But even better, when you import electronic versions of your tax slips and other data into your return with TurboTax, the data from the slips you’ve imported is automatically placed where it needs to go on your tax return.
And you’ll see a summary of the information that has been imported immediately for your review.
Do you run your own business? Are you employed but do some freelance work on the side now and again? Or are you a contractor?
Then TurboTax Home & Business is the income tax application for you. It covers both your personal tax situation and your business tax situation, and ensures that you get all the business deductions that you can claim so you get the biggest income tax refund possible.
Did you think about your income tax when you bought those textbooks you needed for the courses you were taking? Or when you and your family moved halfway across the country to take that new job? Or when your child was born?
How many times have you been using an application and are stopped cold because you don’t know how to do something or need more information before you do?
And how many times have you clicked on that little ‘?’ icon (every software program has one) to get help and found a collection of two-line definitions that doesn’t help you or covers every other topic listed except the very topic you need help with?
But you’ll never experience that kind of frustration using TurboTax to do and file your income tax – because the makers of TurboTax actually support their product and provide help in all different ways.
The new Office from Microsoft is here and it really encompasses what Office users, computer users and tablet users really want. Programs that are smart. That keep them connected to the files and documents they need at any time they want, no matter what device they use. The ability to continue to be productive when using touch. I am actually writing this entire blog using the touch screen keyboard on my Surface device and it's excellent. I flew out to Vancouver to train local computer specialists on the new Office; I didn’t once have to compromise my tablet experience by switching back to my laptop. Office on my tablet helped me be incredibly productive on the go.
If you’ve bought a HD television in the last few years, or have been thinking about it, you’re likely familiar with 1080p resolution (often marketed as full HD). But the talk lately is all about 4K TV and OLED TV, which might leave you wondering if it’s really worth an upgrade or the extra cost. TV manufacturers keep looking for new ways to bring your living room closer to reality, but is it right for you?
