Snaptax

There’s good news and bad news. The bad news is, if you know that filing your taxes is going to be a complex affair involving many investments and assets and dividends, SnapTax, from Intuit, is not going to help you. The good news is, if you have a really simple tax return ahead of you, it’s about to get even simpler! SnapTax is Intuit’s mobile version of the popular TurboTax software, and will allow you to take a photo of your W-2 form using your phone, from which it will glean all relevant information for your tax return. So, for all you non-home owners who are scraping by with wages or unemployment and filing with the 1040EZ, SnapTax will get your return done in…well, a snap. You can pick it up for free from the Android Market.
