New website changes the way consumers receive online tax services, giving consumers more options to choose the professional to prepare their returns

The entire process can literally be done from your iPhone while you’re on the beach.

RedGear Technologies announces MyTaxAuction, a new website where consumers have their taxes done professionally, from anywhere—auction style. Certified tax professionals review tax profiles submitted by the consumer and place a bid on the return. Consumers then choose their preferred preparer based on the preparer’s expertise and bids.

“Everyone’s return is different. Only a human can maximize deductions for your specific return,” said Staci Kinshella, MyTaxAuction Product Manager. “This ensures tax payers get the best return possible at the best price because of the auction format.”

MyTaxAuction is a simple-to-use website connecting consumers with professional tax preparers to file their returns. The site features intuitive navigation and allows consumers to have their taxes professionally prepared from anywhere. Consumers complete a tax profile in 5 to 15 clicks, depending on their tax situation, and start their auction in 2 minutes or less. Certified tax professionals then review the tax profiles and place their bids. Once the auction timeframe expires, consumers review the tax pros’ bids, credentials and ratings, and then choose a professional. Consumers upload their tax documents digitally through a PDF, scanned document or even a photograph.

“The entire process can literally be done from your iPhone while you’re on the beach,” Kinshella added. “No one else is doing this.” allows for secure data transfer and communication during the entire transaction. The consumer and tax professional always stay in touch.

Consumers do not pay for services until tax preparation is complete and they have reviewed a summary of their tax preparation results. Once satisfied, they pay for the services through PayPal. The tax preparer then electronically files the return(s).
