TRACY, Calif., March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Taxbrain®, a leading provider of online do-it-yourself and full-service tax preparation services, reinforced their commitment to being America's online tax service today by announcing YOU&US(SM), a revolutionary new online HD video tax service that will allow taxpayers to ask questions or have their taxes prepared entirely by Taxbrain CPAs and IRS Enrolled Agents – exclusively online. Taxpayers will be able to see and work with a qualified tax professional without ever having to step into a tax office. YOU&US(SM) is a web-browser based HD video solution that allows one-way or two-way video, VOIP or land-line audio, shared desktop data input and review, and much more.
