Now You Have Time to File Your Taxes!

filetaxesTaxes are officially due in a matter of weeks! While many people fuss over guide books, online sources and accountant fees to provide the filing – you may only need your smartphone this year. TurboTax is the online interface for questions, forums, deductions and finally – returns; most importantly, TurboTax has developed a new filing feature that will make requesting your returns easy as a snap. SnapTax, which was released in mid January to tech-savvy taxpayers, is a software application that you can download from the internet, app store or by scanning one of the following QR codes, which enables you to upload your W2 form with the click of your phone camera.

Upon downloading the application to your smartphone, a series of prompts will guide you through the process of capturing your paperwork in a scan-able image, and retrieve all your necessary tax information.  After a series of simple questions, SnapTax will automatically file your taxes, and you should receive confirmation within a couple of days. How cool is that!?

This application is also functional for iPod touches or iPads with iOS 4.1 (or later version).

While this program is convenient and easy – it is not for everyone! Individuals who qualify to use this savvy software must meet the following requirements:

  • Individual may not have dependents.
  • Individual may not own a home or have any real estate ownership.
  • Individual must have an annual income of $80k or less ($100k if married).
  • Individual must receive income information only from W-2s, interest, or unemployment.
