Yes, I know it is only January, but it’s time to start getting your taxes in order. Maybe if they weren’t such a hassle, we wouldn’t dread doing them every year? TurboTax is looking to change that this year with their new SnapTax app for Android devices. If you have a 1040EZ form to fill out this year, you can do it right from your tablet or phone.
TurboTax is owned by Intuit, the same company that runs the very well-known finance app Mint. They are taking that knowledge of money and Android apps into their new SnapTax app that lets you file a 1040EZ in just minutes. All you have to do is fill out the form on paper and then snap a picture of it. SnapTax promises to do the rest. If you are filing the 1040 for federal there is no cost, but state filings will cost you $14.99.
Intuit promises that all data coming and going through this application is encrypted so you don’t need to worry about security. If you are looking for a way to make your taxes go a bit quicker this year, hit the link below for the download.
