Once a year (and usually at the last minute) we all find ourselves scrambling to file our taxes and get square with the Government again. Fortunately for us, this year could be a breeze thanks to the folks at TurboTax. Their SnapTax App allows you to do your taxes from start to finish just by, believe it or not, using your iPhone or Android device.
This app makes the dreaded and often time-consuming obligation of filing taxes as simple as taking a picture on your smart phone. First, just download the application, which is free (awesome); next, take a picture of your W-2 (where the "snap" part comes in); then, answer a few simple questions, review, and that's it! Consider yourself e-filed. No standing in lines, no paying an accountant... This app just saved you tons of time and money. Can't argue with that.
Even for those filing on their own for the first time this year and feeling a bit intimidated, don't worry -- TurboTax has your back. There are no more excuses for not being able to get your taxes done by the April 18 deadline!
Here's a short video to show you how the SnapTax app works:
