The Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters has acquired Dr Tax, Canada’s largest independently owned developer of income tax software for accounting firms and consumers.

Dr Tax is known in Canada for its DT MAX tax compliance software, used by more than 3,000 Canadian accounting firms, and for its UFile and ImpotExpert consumer software lines, which are sold online and through retail outlets. The company is headquartered in, and will continue to operate from, Montreal.

Jon Baron, president of the professional unit within the Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters said “Thomson Reuters will retain Dr Tax’s product lines and facilities after the acquisition.  Customers should expect the same exemplary products they are accustomed to, managed by the same development team and supported by the same customer service team.  For Dr Tax customers, it will be business as usual.”
