A quick reminder that the tax deadline in Canada is coming up: April 30, 2019! If you’re self-employed, the last day to file taxes is June 30th.

“Don’t let your procrastination be a crisis”, said my friend, a Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and a Chartered Public Accountant (CPA).

He was referring to the last 20 days remaining before I beat the due date.

Oh well, it pays to have acquaintances in the upper echelons of the business circle. You get awesome win-win solutions and advice to personal economic woes, especially tax-related issues. Who else would want to read 1.1 million words of Canada’s Income Tax Act?

Is it possible to make life easier for Canadians by simplifying the tax system?

I will let you in on a very new tax-filing app that will set you FREE from the conundrum and the complexity of complying with the law.


I’m talking about CLOUDTAX, a new tax software available in Canada. It is NETFILE-certified tax software that makes it easy for non-business tax filers to file their taxes for free, either on desktop or mobile phone.

FREE means no charge in downloading CloudTax, a web/mobile-friendly income-tax filing platform. Use your phone in filing your tax—be they Android or iOS Mobile or iPad.

It sounds great, eh?

It is cloud-based software that you can access to do your taxes anywhere if you have an internet connection.

Here are more freebies:

  •  Simple tax solutions
  •  Digital tax return storage
  •  PDF-formatted file that you can view prior to filing
  •  Refile
  •  Unlimited Chat/Phone support
  •  Step-by-step guidance

Comparatively, most of these features are not available on other free software like TurboTax, SimpleTax, and the H&R Block online.

Let’s say, you get stuck and need some assistance, don’t worry. Be brave, be strong. CloudTax has a chat box that you can type into to chat with a support team member to help you. At no additional cost.

I tested this myself the other day. I saved my profile, then logged out from the application. The following morning, an e-mail came through:

CloudTax provides informational video support throughout the application. If you have any questions along the way, feel free to ask our TaxBot in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen. You also have an option to get your application reviewed by a CloudTax Expert, before submitting your application – we’re here with you every step of the way. You can do it!

Book an appointment with us at and we’ll take it from there!

Cheering you on,
Nim and The CloudTax Team

That’s CloudTax cheering for me—way too smart to remind me to finish what I started.

If you wanted some additional features such as audit protection and unlimited phone support throughout the year, you have the option to upgrade for an additional $2.99/month. Cancel anytime.

If you want someone to double-check your work, you can pay $19 for a certified e-filer to review your Tax Return before submitting it.

Life calls for spontaneity. Lining up at a tax clinic, at a scheduled appointment, with your precious documents is not one of them; and paying a fee that takes a bite into your refund does not feel smart at all

As a former Canada Revenue Agency employee, Nimalan Balachandran has been witness to the stress and anxiety that tax season imposes onto hard-working Canadians, which is why many are willing to pay out of pocket for tax services. However, CloudTax is the app that has changed the tax game as we know it.
