Hey, folks, welcome to Tap That App. I�m Jaymar Cabebe, and this is the
show where we tap the hottest apps on planet Earth.
So, it is almost April, and you know what that means� tax season!
Exciting, right? Now, I know you�re probably thinking, �how can I bring
my W-2s and 1099s into other parts of my life? How can I think about my
taxes like all the time, even when I�m out?�
Well, look no further than these TurboTax-powered apps for your
First up, we have TaxCaster, a free app that helps you estimate your
tax refund before you even start filing.
Just input some basic information about yourself, like marital status,
age, and dependents; enter your income information; then go in and
select your deductions, credits, and payments.
At the top of the screen, you�ll see the little Refund Meter with your
estimate, and of course, the more questions you answer, the more
accurate it gets.
Next, when you�re ready to start filing, try SnapTax. You can use it
without an account or use your TurboTax login, if you have one.
What SnapTax does is let you E-file a 1040EZ return right from your
phone. It may sound strange, but if you have a supersimple tax
situation, it could make sense for you.
The cool thing about the app is that it can actually pull your payroll
data from a photo of your W-2, so you don�t have to hand-enter
Complete the form with all your personal information, and you�ll see
your Federal and State tax refund numbers at the top of the screen.
SnapTax is free to download. But if you use it to file, it�ll cost you
Finally, when you�re finished filing your tax return, you can check on
your refund status with another free download called My Tax Refund.
Just input your Social Security No. and your zip code, or your expected
refund amount, and let it do the tracking.
So, whether taxes actually do excite you, or they make you want to rip
your f***ing hair out of your head, be sure to check out TaxCaster,
SnapTax, and My Tax Refund.
And as always, if you�ve got another hot app that you want me to tap,
holler at me on the Twitter. Thanks for watching.
