TurboTax has introduced SnapTax, a mobile app that lets people file their taxes from their iPhone or Android devices.
SnapTax allows users with simple returns to take a photo of their W-2 with their mobile phones and then automatically enters the information into their tax return. Users answer a few basic questions, review their their return for accuracy and tap “File Now” to electronically file their federal and state tax returns.
“SnapTax offers an entirely new and unique way to file taxes,” said Barry Saik, vice president of product management for TurboTax.
“Now, millions of taxpayers across the country can do their taxes easily and accurately from their mobile phones in just minutes.”
Users can download the mobile app for free and pay when they electronically file their return. The price is $14.99 and includes one federal 1040EZ and one state tax return plus e-filing. SnapTax is available in the Apple App Store and Android Market.
