Tax apps. Technology never ceases to amaze me. My husband’s younger siblings run their entire lives on their iPhones, so it’s only natural that the younger generation will also prepare their taxes on their smartphones. And that year has arrived; the first tax filing app is now available!
In my quest to appear young and cool to my sister-in-law and brother-in-law in their early 20s, I decided to download all the hot tax apps on my Android phone and see which ones are actually helpful for your tax preparation.
Of course, when I tell them I did this, they’ll remind me that the pure fact that I was checking out tax apps, will make me uncool and old.
I downloaded every single tax app I could find. Here are the tax apps I found helpful.
There were also plenty of tax apps that I downloaded that were a waste of time, including many of the tax calculator apps. I won’t bore you with the details of those.
Since this is the first year that filing using a tax app is available, I expect a lot more to come in the future, and the Turbo tax apps are clearly the frontrunners.
If you find other helpful tax apps, let me know!
