File Taxes From Your Android Phone with TurboTax SnapTax

We’re nearing that time of year when people agonize over their taxes.  Over the years, things have gotten easier for the average Joe as PC software has helped to lessen the mental burden.  Things continue to progress this year with Intuit’s TurboTax-branded SnapTax application for Android phones. Users who typically file simple tax returns (1040EZ) can do so directly from their handsets by taking a picture of their W-2 statement. After a few more tidbits of info, the user is ready to send off their taxes. The application is free to download and install, however, it runs $14.99 for a TurboTax filing license to process the form.
