Downloading GenuTax Standard

Due to the size of the file(s) to be downloaded to install GenuTax Standard, a broadband (cable or ADSL) Internet connection is strongly recommended.

The size of the installer program for GenuTax Standard is 48.36 MB. If this is the first time you have installed GenuTax Standard on your computer running Windows 7, you will also likely have to install version 4.5 of the Microsoft .NET Framework. You could experience problems successfully downloading the installers if you do not have a reliable high-speed Internet connection.

Windows Vista No Longer Supported

As of February 14, 2016, the Canada Revenue Agency has updated their NETFILE system to use a more secure form of encryption called Transport Layer Security (TLS) version 1.2. Unfortunately, since Windows Vista does not natively support TLS 1.2 encryption within the operating system, it is no longer considered to be a secure platform for filing tax returns. Therefore, Windows Vista no longer meets the minimum system requirements for GenuTax Standard software.
