What is a .U12 file?

The .U12 file extension is associated with a specific type of document called a UFile 2012 Tax Return. This document is created using a software program named UFile 2012, which is designed to help people living in Canada prepare their tax returns. The .U12 file contains all the necessary forms and information that the user has entered regarding their income taxes in Canada. This can include various types of income, deductions, and credits that the user is eligible for.

Once the tax return is prepared using UFile 2012, the user has a couple of options for submitting it to the Canada Revenue Agency, which is the government body responsible for tax collection and enforcement. One option is to print out the tax return and mail it. Another, more modern option is to file it electronically through a feature in the UFile program called NETFILE. NETFILE is a system that allows taxpayers to send their tax returns over the internet directly to the Canada Revenue Agency in a secure and convenient way.

To open a .U12 file, you need specific software programs that can handle this type of file. The programs known to open .U12 files include: 1. **Dr Tax UFile**: This is the software that is specifically designed to create and manage .U12 files since it's the program used to prepare the tax return.

2. **Intuit Canada TurboTax**: Another tax preparation software that is popular in Canada. It can also open and possibly edit .U12 files, allowing users to work on their tax returns.

3. **Web**: This likely refers to online versions of tax preparation software, such as Dr Tax UFile Online+ and possibly an online version of TurboTax. These web applications allow users to work on their tax returns directly in a web browser without needing to install software on their computer.

In summary, if you have a .U12 file, it means you have a Canadian tax return document prepared with UFile 2012. To open, view, or edit this file, you would need to use either the Dr Tax UFile software, Intuit Canada TurboTax, or an online tax preparation service that supports this file type.
