Do Your Taxes On Your Smartphone


tax form 385 Do Your Taxes On Your Smartphone

There’s an app coming out today that will allow smartphones to file taxes.

Intuit’s TurboTax is due to unveil SnapTax, a new mobile application that lets taxpayers who file an 1040EZ prepare and file federal and state income taxes. The app can be downloaded for free, but a 14-dollar-99-cent fee will be charged to file a return. The app uses optical character recognition technology to fill out users’ tax returns. It’ll transfer information to the relevant lines on Form 1040EZ once a picture of a W2 is taken with a smartphone. The app provides the same security and privacy features that come in the company’s tax preparation software.
