“IRS e-file is the best option for everyone, especially for people impacted by recent tax law changes,” said Doug Shulman, IRS commissioner.
“E-file ensures people can file accurately and get refunds quickly. With a new legislative e-file mandate for tax preparers, we anticipate that more tax return preparers will be using e-file this year, and we urge people who prepare their own taxes to give it a try. IRS e-file is now the norm, not the exception.”
With the SnapTax app, you can automatically complete basic IRS tax forms on your iPhone or Android by simply taking a picture of your W-2 form and filing in a couple of details. Using OCR technology, it streamlines and simplifies tax preparation, giving you a running tally of taxes owed or if you are entitled to a refund.
The SnapTax app is free to download but you will need to pay $14.99 for one federal 1040EZ and one state tax return plus e-filing.
