Posted by Rob Rich on February 4th, 2014 iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
It’s beginning to look a lot like tax time. Well, okay, maybe it doesn’t look like it yet, but it’s definitely that time of year again. And TurboTax SnapTax has been updated for the 2013 tax season just in time.
For the unfamiliar, SnapTax is all about making your federal (and state with an in-app purchase) taxes less of a hassle via your iOS device. Simply take a photo of your W-2, answer some questions, then e-file. This year’s update, aside from being necessary due to the near constant shifting and tweaking of tax legislation, also gives users the option to use the app in Spanish. Additionally, the app makes it easy to contact qualified professionals if a bit of help is needed.
You can grab the new TurboTax SnapTax right now for free (federal), with an optional IAP of $14.99 (state).
Employers are constantly fighting an uphill battle these days. In an age where tax laws are constantly in flux, it has become virtually impossible to conduct business without the aid of serious financial software. Intuit, the developer of the extremely popular Quicken and QuickBooks suites, has decided to lend a small hand to folks struggling to keep their payroll records in order with the release of Snap Payroll.
Though it may not contain the overwhelming feature set of its PC centric counterparts, Snap Payroll is a handy way to calculate paychecks on the move. Here is a video demonstrating the application’s capabilities:
As you can see, the uses of this tool are rather focused, but how can you complain when the app is free? One other thing to note is that it is currently only available in twelve states, with more coming soon. Check to see if you are among the lucky few and take it out for a spin. Let us know if it would be helpful to your business in the comments.
