TurboTax Tax Return App
by: Intuit Inc • 46.4K
The TurboTax app is great if you're only filing a simple return. If your taxes are more complicated than that, using the app maybe more of a headache than it's worth. To start the process, simply take a picture of your W-2, then swipe the screen to answer tax related questions. While the app says it's free to file, it's only free if you have a simple tax return. If you have a 1099 of any sort or are looking for extra deductions, it's going to cost you. And it's going to be complicated to file through the app. Not saying it can't be done, but it would be easier, and quicker, to sit down in front of the computer to do it. Not only is it more difficult to add information, but if you make a mistake, it's harder to go back and fix it. Overall, great for simple returns, not so good for those of us who have more than one W-2 or work for ourselves.
This app gives you an easy way to file your taxes for free (if they're simple). It's easy to use and gives you step by step instructions.
If you're taxes go over anything but the original tax form, it's going to cost you and it's going to get complicated doing it through the app. It's easy to just file from a computer or call an accountant!
