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.
