New York, NY (PRWEB) March 29, 2016
1-800 Accountant, a full-service, virtual accounting firm has launched Tax App, a one-of-a-kind mobile application allowing users to easily submit and file taxes in three simple steps using only a mobile phone. Just in time for tax season, Tax App allows the user to photograph and upload tax documents via their phone or mobile device, which then automatically sends the documents to a live accountant for review and direct IRS submission.
A leader in accounting technology, 1-800 Accountant bridges the gap between tax service technology and the live professional support that users need to feel confident in their tax preparation. By streamlining and simplifying the tax filing process online, Tax App is especially useful for consumers, on-the-go small business owners and independent contractors who receive 1099 forms, such as Uber and Lyft drivers.
“This app will reinvent the way small business owners and independent contractors do their taxes,” said Mike Savage, chief executive officer at 1-800 Accountant. “Instead of bringing a big box of documents to a tax agent, users can easily submit their information by snapping a few photos and making a quick phone call.”
After the free download and a one-time fee of $295 for personal taxes or $695 for businesses, Tax App offers users access to an online portal that allows them to submit and view their documents in one central place. Once the user submits all documents, it is sent to an accountant who will either email or call the user for any follow-up details. Upon confirmation from the user, the accountant then files the taxes directly with the IRS, and a copy of the tax return will be uploaded to the user’s portal. Once their documents are submitted to an accountant, users can expect all their documents to be reviewed and submitted to the IRS in as little as 24 hours.
“Our tax application is the only one that fuses tax service technology with real human assistance, all through the use of a mobile device,” said Gary Milkwick, chief product officer at 1-800 Accountant. “With an easy-to-use interface and a live accountant to finish the process, it’s truly the quickest, most affordable way for people to do their taxes online while still getting personalized attention from an accountant.”
The Tax App is available for iOS and Android users and can be downloaded free from the Google Play and Apple App stores by using the key words “Tax App 1-800Accountant.”
1-800 Accountant also offers Clientbooks, a cloud-based platform that allows small business owners to easily sync bank accounts, send invoices, generate financial reports and upload important business documents. To view all services offered by 1-800 Accountant, visit 1800accountant.com.
