CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, Feb. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- TaxAct has rolled out a new mobile app which makes it faster and easier for customers to upload their data and electronically file their tax returns. The app, available for smartphone, iPad, and Android tablet users, builds on TaxAct customer feedback by further simplifying the process of completing and filing tax returns as well as allowing for more customizable options.
The TaxAct mobile app can be downloaded from the Apple Store at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id780530070. Android users can download the app at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.taxact.express2013.
The TaxAct mobile app helps first-time TaxAct customers select the most appropriate TaxAct product and tax-return forms, based on information about their individual tax situation and preferences, when they begin the process. After ensuring a smooth beginning, the app enables TaxAct customers to continually move forward with filling in and filing their tax returns on any device from start to finish. The app also utilizes built-in W-2 capture technology to import tax information into customers' tax returns.
"When our customers talk, we listen," said Rob Gettemy, Chief Operating Officer of TaxAct. "For many consumers, the greatest fear related to taxes is that they will fill out the wrong forms, or the technology solution they use will not be able to meet their specific needs. Our mobile app brings customers tax peace of mind, helping them seamlessly identify the right tax forms, and the right TaxAct products, that align with their personal situation."
In addition, Apple's 3D Touch® technology within the TaxAct mobile app grants customers access to a library of commonly asked questions that can help them easily determine the right TaxAct product for their tax-filing needs. For example, customers who do not know if they qualify to file as head of household can utilize 3D Touch® technology in the app to select the term "filing status," and view the information they seek without leaving the page.
"Our strong customer focus drives us to consistently improve and simplify the tax-filing experience," said Sanjay Baskaran, President of TaxAct. "The new, advanced, and easy-to-use TaxAct mobile app is the latest enhancement we have developed to ensure that each of our customers can file their taxes accurately and efficiently."
