In 2015 taxes may be a lot easier to file, and millions of Hispanic Americans will be able to appreciate one of the newest mobile applications from TurboTax. SnapTax lets you file your tax return in English or Spanish, and TurboTax intends to reach the 52 million individuals who may welcome this streamlined way of filing.  

A language barrier may create an additional challenge to filing a simple tax return, but SnapTax will eliminate this barrier for millions of tax filers. SnapTax is free of charge, and a cell phone is all you need to get your 1040EZ/A filing started.

Optical Character Recognition allows you to photograph your W-2 and enter the information onto your tax return. There are a few questions to answer afterwards, but you can file your simple return electronically in approximately ten minutes.

H&R Block Appeals to TurboTax Deluxe Users

TurboTaxDeluxe

Turbo Tax Enters a New Era with Tax Software Changes and Software wars get tough with tax time soon beginning.

Mouseprint an affiliate of Consumer World.org informed Turbo Tax users that Intuits product, Turbo Tax Deluxe, so popular with filers is changing. The schedule C (self-employment), Schedule E (Partnership Income-Rental) or Schedule D (Investment) no longer exist in Turbo Tax Deluxe. Customers now need to upgrade to the "Premier" editions and above.

The founder of ConsumerWorld.org, Mr. Edgar Dworsky expressed the change as a "Clever ploy." Take away what people consider essential, and set a higher price. The surprise from users might prove quite interesting. Some will only realize the difference while working on their taxes. Tax preparation for many people is stressful and this change will not be met with open arms.
