Intuit unveils SnapTax for iPhone Android
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (1/24/11)--Intuit announced that SnapTax, a mobile application that allows people to prepare and file their taxes, is now available nationwide for both iPhone and Android from TurboTax. Intuit Financial Services is a CUNA Strategic Services provider. Introduced last year in California, SnapTax allows taxpayers with simple returns to snap a photo of their W-2 with their mobile phones and then automatically enters the information into their tax return, Intuit said. Taxpayers answer a few basic questions, review their return for accuracy and tap “File Now” to electronically file their federal and state tax returns in minutes. According to a release, SnapTax uses optical character recognition (OCR) technology to streamline tax preparation and shows a running tally of the refund, or taxes owed, every step of the way, according to the release.
