Company Profile

Appletax is a Canadian tax preparation company operating exclusively in Canada. The company was founded in 2013 by Richard Perrault. Richard was a senior finance officer with 34 years of service in the Canadian Forces. Richard currently owns and operates Appletax at the Whitby Mall Shopping Centre.

Richard prepared income returns for many years as a sole proprietor. One day he was asked what was the name of his business. His business did not have a name. It was suggested to him, anything with the name “Apple” turns to gold. This simple comment seeded the idea which led to the creation of Appletax Corporation.

Every year, an increasing number of Canadians turn to Appletax for their income tax needs. Over the years, Appletax has grown to become the most trusted income tax service in York and Durham Region. Their services include, personal, business, corporate, charities, and discounted returns. Appletax will spend as much, or as little, time as you wish to help you understand how to take advantage of all possible tax credits available. Their fast and accurate services are available by email, over the phone, in person, and now through their virtual office.

The stubbornness of COVID-19 has changed the way tax preparers must deliver their services. To this end, Appletax introduced alternative delivery options while maintaining fast and accurate services to their clients. With its continuous evolutionary thinking, Appletax introduced a 'Virtual Tax Office’. This virtual office incorporates a collection of technological innovations that aim at maintaining physical distancing. This technology allows Appletax to send documents to their clients with security encryption to comply with the PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act) legislation to protect your privacy and your data.

You are encouraged to contact Appletax to request a userid and password in order to take full advantage of their "virtual" services.

Alternatively, your income tax return can be completed with a simple phone call and/or by email. You can also drop off your documents and Appletax guarantees to prepare your income tax return in no more than 48 hours.
