Available for iPhone and Android devices, SnapTax claims to do your taxes in 10 minutes or less. Sound too good to be true? Well, there are limitations: You can’t own a home, you have to earn less than $100,000 ($120,000 if you file jointly) and you have to only have W-2, interest or unemployment income.
However, if you are one of the millions of Americans who doesn’t have to itemize, then filing your taxes right from your smartphone could be very appealing. Snap Tax lets you upload your W-2s by taking a picture of the form with your mobile device; it asks a few simple questions, and you’re all set.
The program is free to download but charges $24.99 to e-file finished returns (state filing is included).
