Just in time for tax season 2011, today, Intuit announced that TurboTax has added another offer to the robust suite of mobile apps available to taxpayers.
New TurboTax for Android Offers True Native Experience
Designed and optimized specifically for Android tablets, the new mobile app gives you the freedom to work on your taxes anytime, anywhere, and without always being connected to the Internet. The customized, native app takes advantage of the tablet environment with a unique look and feel, easy navigation and automatically presents customized keyboards, on devices that support it, to make entering tax data easier and more intuitive.
Tax returns can be password protected for an extra layer of security. You can e-file your tax return directly from your tablet and get a refund in as little as seven days with direct deposit and can easily and securely email a copy of your tax return to your computer. The app supports Android tablets that are 3.x and above.
This is another effort to reach an audience of both new and existing customers on the devices they prefer. While you currently cannot transfer previous year tax information or import income automatically, the app includes the same step-by-step guidance to help you reach your maximum tax refund. This year, TurboTax is the only software to offer everyone free one-on-one live tax advice, via phone or chat from highly experienced tax professionals.
TurboTax for Android tablets is the first and only tax prep app designed specifically for Android tablets that enable taxpayers with simple and complex returns to prepare and e-file both their federal and state taxes completely from their tablet. For Android phone customers, SnapTax, an app designed for a simple return (1040EZ) is also available.
To learn more about the apps, go to Android tablets. You can download the app for free from the Android Market, and pay when you’re done. You can start in TurboTax Deluxe, for $29.99, and based on your tax situation, you can choose TurboTax Premier or TurboTax Home & Business for an additional cost. State tax preparation is additional. All pricing is subject to change and includes e-file at no additional cost.
