TurboTaxfor iOS



Free tax return app

TurboTax is a free tax app for iOS that helps you with your state or federal tax return. It’s excellent for taking the stress out of your taxes.

Is the TurboTax app free?

Yes, you can download the app for free. Just be aware that you may be charged for filing the tax return. If your tax is simple, then you’ll pay nothing. On the other hand, if your filings are complicated such as deductibles and tax credits, the app will require you to purchase an advanced package for this help. You can also access a tax expert for unlimited help and a final review before submitting.

Is TurboTax easy for beginners?

Yes. It’s simple even for novices to tax returns. TurboTax leads you through the process, one step at a time. If you need additional forms from banks or investment companies, for example, TurboTax will tell you what you need so you can upload them. If you’re looking for live support, you can even talk to a tax professional.

Can you use TurboTax on your iPad?

You can use Turbo Tax for iOS on your iPad or iPhone, provided they’re running iOS 12.0 or above. You can switch between iOS devices and pick up where you left off on another device. However, you can’t do this with the desktop version. Plus, you can scan any additional forms directly into the app to include them in your filing.

What is the difference between TurboTax free and Deluxe?

If your tax filing is a simple, TurboTax free is fantastic. However, if you have other considerations such as expenses, deductibles, or tax credits, you’ll need TurboTax Deluxe. It scans over 350 deductions and guarantees you the maximum tax deductions and credits available. TurboTax Deluxe ensures you get any refund that is due. You also receive on-demand access to a TurboTax specialist and the community.
