Houston, Texas (PRWEB) January 24, 2013
A new online tax preparation service launched by Houston-based W2 Tax Services aims to revolutionize the way individuals file their taxes. According to IRS estimates, the average taxpayer filing a 1040EZ spends 7 hours to complete their tax return at a cost of approximately $50. A person filing the more complex form 1040 will spend more than 3 times as much, 22 hours at a cost of $290. W2's Easy Efile, aims to reduce this time and cost while providing a professional tax preparation service to taxpayers. It combines cloud technology, bank-level security, and mobile accessibility to provide a hassle free service that fulfills all requirements of the IRS. Taxpayers who opt to use the service will have their taxes prepared and reviewed by a CPA, and they can do so from the comfort of their favorite chair at home. Customers have access to a free smartphone or tablet app, or they can use the web-based version from a laptop or desktop computer.
W2's Easy Efile is the first service of its kind that provides the taxpayer a complete and total mobile experience - transmission of taxpayer information, review of the completed tax return, online secure payment for the tax preparation service, and complementary e-filing. There are 3 general flavors of tax services: (1) manual do-it-yourself, (2) software aided do-it-yourself, and (3) traditional professional service. Easy Efile combines the convenience of a software-aided do-it-yourself solution with the benefit of having your tax return prepared by seasoned professionals…all at a lower cost to the taxpayer than if they did their own taxes. In addition, each client receives a consultation with a CPA, complimentary e-filing, and a service warranty. The taxpayer does not have to understand any of the complexities of the tax code, nor do they need to understand any of the associated terminology often found in tax software. Customers don't have to commute, wait in line, or pay the higher cost typically associated with having their taxes prepared by a professional.
Service charges start at $45 and may be less with a discount coupon (currently available on W2's Facebook page). When registering for the service, W2's customers will pay a deposit of $45 and immediately receive access to the W2 Easy Efile app (mobile and/or web). They will be able to securely upload files or snap pictures of printed documents with a tablet or smartphone. Once all the documents are uploaded, the client will press a button in the app to submit their documents to W2. From there, the team at W2 takes over. Customers can expect their returns to be completed and ready for review within 72 hours. One of W2's CPAs will review the completed return with the client, and if nothing needs to be changed, they can efile it the same day. With a combination of expert service, secure and convenient mobile and web apps, and an unbeatable price, W2's Easy Efile is set to shakeup the tax preparation industry.
