TurboTax 2012 iPad App

Intuit Inc.
This app is for more complex tax returns using TurboTax Deluxe, Premier or Home & Business versions and pricing varies depending on which version you need (see below). And, sorry Android tablet owners, this is only for iPad (retina iPad and iPad Mini only). Maybe you'll have better luck next year.

Start your tax return on the TurboTax iPad App by snapping a photo of your W-2, then answer questions in a tax interview, review your return and e-File.

The iTunes store says that you just need to "answer a few simple questions" to complete your return with this app, but if your return is that simple, you can probably use TurboTax SnapTax and save some money. The number of questions you answer depends on the number of income tax related events you had in 2012. Just like other TurboTax tax software, the questions will help with finding every deduction and credit you have coming.

Cost: Free to download, final cost (noted below) depends on version used. See TurboTax 2012 Versions, Features and Prices to learn which version you'll need.

  • Deluxe Federal $29.99
  • Deluxe Federal and State $64.99
  • Premier Federal $49.99
  • Premier Federal and State $84.99
  • Home & Business Federal $74.99
  • Home & Business Federal and State $109.99
  • State only, no Federal return $36.99
