StudioTax 2016 for Windows
StudioTax for the Mac can be downloaded from the Mac download page
Note that you do not have to uninstall StudioTax 2015 or previous StudioTax versions. All StudioTax versions can be installed at the same time.
The latest StudioTax versions ( 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016) are compatible with the following Windows versions: Windows Vista SP2, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.
Windows XP is no longer supported by StudioTax. This restriction is due to a CRA upgrade of the security protocol used by the Netfile server. Windows XP does not support the new protocol nor the development tools required to build StudioTax. Please note that there is no workaround and we do not foresee that XP will be supported by StudioTax.
