What USAA did for check depositing, Intuit is doing for tax returns! Their $9.99 TurboTax SnapTax app for iPhone lets you snap a picture of your W-2s, which it uses to autofill some of your data, then you answer some questions & click to file your returns. It’s for California residents only with fairly basic tax return needs, but it sure looks to make them as quick & painless as possible.

There’s a demo video if you want to see it in action.

Like me, you should have received you 2008 W2s sometime around last week and it’s now time to think about gathering all your tax forms together and getting them filed. For the last few years I’ve been using TurboTax to save myself a lot of time & frustration.

I’d suggest buying TurboTax 2008 for Mac & PC as you can use it for everyone in your household, but TurboTax Online is also a great option and is a little less expensive. With the latter, it’s free if you only need to file a 1040EZ!

Of course, if you buy from one of the above links you’ll also help support this site.
