After piloting the program in California, Turbo Tax has decided to take its iPhone filing program nationwide, allowing users to essentially file taxes using their phones. Users can take a photo of their W-2 with their phone's camera; the app then extracts all of the necessary data. The app then asks a few more questions and when it's finished allows one-click filing.
The app is free, but it will cost you $15 to file your return. And if it sounds basic, that's because it is — Turbo Tax's iPhone app is made for use with the simple 1040-EZ form, so if you're dealing with a complex tax situation, the app isn't the best choice.
