I did some research this year, and then purchased a subscription with SignNow.com. The basic “Business” subscription is US$96/year (which worked out to about CAD$125). They have additional plans with more features. Payment | signNow
They don’t specify a limit on the number of signatures or documents, but it’s not “unlimited”. I discussed this with their support staff, who said that “expected” usage is about 100 documents per month (with the basic plan). I explained that 80% of my usage would be between March 1 and April 30, and they said it would be no problem as long as my yearly average was less than 100/month.
SignNow includes the ability to store (archive) the completed documents online (accessible only by me). Signers don’t have to log in or create an account. But, there is no integration with TaxCycle - I generate PDFs from TaxCycle, then upload to the SignNow website interface (which is drag-and-drop), add the signature and date fields, and send to the recipients’ email addresses. Once the document is signed, I get an email from SignNow with the PDF attached, which is also available for download from the website interface. There is an option to have the date and time stamp appear below the signature. When I want to e-file the T1, I have to click the T183 e-signature link in TaxCycle, and manually enter the date/time.
Also note that SignNow doesn’t include an address book (doesn’t save my contacts) but does remember the most recent 100 or so email addresses used.
So, it’s not as slick as TaxFolder, but for a quarter of the price, it works for me…
