SnapTax is available in the App Store for $9.99, which includes federal and California state preparation and e-file. To get the most out of SnapTax’s innovative OCR capabilities, it’s best if you use it with the iPhone 3GS, still the 3G version is fine too.
If you’re a California resident then this is a super easy way to file your taxes quickly if you have a simple return. Snaptax works with 1040A and 1040EZ.
