Turbo Tax Comes to the iPad

Posted by at 11:56 am on March 8, 2011

TurboTax has announced a new app designed and optimized specifically for mobile users of the iPad. TurboTax for the iPad combines the ease and accuracy of TurboTax with the convenience and portability of the Apple iPad.

One of the first iPad apps from Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq:INTU), it is the first and only mobile app that lets taxpayers prepare and e-file both their federal and state taxes completely from their iPad.

The new TurboTax app gives users the freedom to work on their taxes anytime and anywhere, even when they’re on the go. The app lets users choose whether to work in landscape or portrait view and like all TurboTax products, guides consumers step-by-step through their return to their maximum refund.

E-file From Your iPad

Customers can e-file their return directly from the iPad and get a refund in as little as eight days with direct deposit. After filing, they can check the status of their federal tax refund, based on Internal Revenue Service projections, with the TurboTax MyTaxRefund iPad app.

“A growing number of people rely on mobile devices to live their lives, and TurboTax is committed to providing easy-to-use tax apps for them,” said Todd Stanley, vice president of product management & development for TurboTax. “Having TurboTax available for the iPad perfectly blends the ease of use TurboTax is known for with the convenience of a tablet, creating another option for people to easily and accurately file their return.”

Price and Availability

Taxpayers can download the mobile app for free from the Apple App store and pay when they are done. Customers begin in TurboTax Deluxe, for $29.99, and based on their tax situation, choose TurboTax Premier or TurboTax Home & Business for an additional cost. State tax preparation is additional. All pricing is subject to change and includes e-file at no additional cost.
