SnapTax lets you prepare and e-file your 2013 taxes entirely in Spanish or, with a quick tap in the settings menu, switch between English and Spanish as you progress through your tax return. Bilingual consumers will continue to have direct access to English- and Spanish-speaking agents and experts by phone that can provide answers to commonly-asked questions in their language of choice.
Developed specifically for the 52 million Hispanic Americans, SnapTax, from TurboTax maker Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU), is fast, easy and convenient.
Ideal for taxpayers with simple tax returns (1040EZ/A), SnapTax lets you securely snap a photo of your W-2 with your mobile phone or tablet and then, using optical character recognition (OCR) technology, automatically puts the information on the right place in your tax return. Taxpayers then answer a few simple questions, review your return and tap “File My Taxes” to electronically file your taxes in as few as 10 minutes. That’s it!
According to the Pew Research Center, about half (49%) of U.S. Hispanic adults own a smartphone and at least 34 percent own a tablet, making mobile tax preparation an easy, convenient option.
Turbo tax understands that because of fear of not understanding the tax-filing process, millions of Hispanics doubt they can prepare their own taxes. No one should have to pay $100 or more to get their taxes done, especially a simple tax return.
With SnapTax, taxpayers can prepare and e-file a federal return for free.
