TurboTax Launches the First Full Mobile Tax Preparation App in Spanish + GIVEAWAY!!


As you know 2014 Tax Season is here, and TurboTax announced today the launch of the first full mobile tax preparation solution in Spanish: TurboTax SnapTaxAccording to the Pew Research Center, about half (49%) of U.S. Hispanic adults own a smartphone and at least 34 percent own a tablet, making mobile tax preparation an easy, convenient option.

This year, 52 million U.S. Hispanics and any other American will have the chance to prepare their simple tax returns (1040EZ/A) in either English or Spanish, from the convenience of their smartphones or tablets. Using optical character recognition (OCR) technology, SnapTax automatically puts the information on the right place on your tax return. All you have to do is snap a photo of your W2 form! Then answer a few simple questions, review your return and tap “File My Taxes” to electronically file their taxes in as few as 10 minutes. Here is a video to show how SnapTax works:




This sounds so easy. I think it makes sense that we are moving towards being able to do almost everything online. I have to say that it is probably a good product. We have been using TurboTax for over a decade now. We love it. We even tried another tax program one year and, promptly, went back to TurboTax because it was so much better. 

What I love about TurboTax is the ease of use. We buy the program and download it on our laptop. Luckily, since we use it every year, it remember all out pertinent information and fills it in so it saves us time. It also saves us money because we spend less than $100 on the program depending on the bells and whistles we need. We can do it from home and it has never let us down. Check out the TurboTax prices.



If our taxes weren't so complicated, I would even consider using SnapTax. But we have stocks, freelance income and other things that complicate matters. But even with all the complications, TurboTax comes through every time. 

But if your taxes are not difficult to do, you should consider SnapTax. It will save you time and money. You can download and file your Federal taxes for free. Now if you have to file state taxes, there is a fee. But it is well worth using TurboTax because it will be easy! 

SnapTax is available on the App Store, Google Play Marketplace, Amazon.com and at SnapTax.com.

To help you along with your taxes this year, I have 3 gift cards for the Deluxe edition of TurboTax. The Deluxe edition includes Federal taxes and your State tax program. YAY! This is the one we use and it works out for us! Just enter on the Rafflecopter widget below!
