Haven't filed your taxes yet? Maybe it's a good thing you waited, because this weekend only TurboTax is offering Android users a free Basic or Deluxe return through their Android app, including the Kindle Fire version on the Amazon Appstore. This includes a federal and state return (savings of $87 for Deluxe, $107 for Premier, $127 for Home and Business).

The catch? You have to start your return (from scratch, if you've already begun in the online or desktop versions) between now and April 1st, and use the Android app to do the whole thing (you can't start in the Android app then finish online). And you need to have a compatible, Android 3.0+ tablet (or Kindle Fire) to use the app in the first place.

The TurboTax for Android App is available on the Play Store and the Amazon Appstore (for the Kindle Fire edition - which is free today, as well).

    Should have known this before I filed my taxes over a month ago!

    I filled in my W-2 info online already, is there a way to discard it and start over? That is, if the Touchpad on CM9 counts?

    • Olivia

      Ah nevermind, looks like that is a no.

  • Will

    For the first time ever I do the responsible thing and file my taxes as soon as I get my W2... and it turns out I'm a chump for doing it.

    Bloody. Hell.

    Just tried the app and wow - what an incredibly polished interface. It can do so much more than I thought it could, this ain't the SnapTax 1040EZ-only edition with tons of limitations. This one will go as far as all kinds of 1099s, including MISC, business income, and pretty much I think everything even the desktop Turbotax asks. I'm impressed.

    Having recently traded my Desire Z (R.I.P) for a Sensation I can say that you really don't miss a dedicated camera button once it's gone. I actually prefer using the on-screen button, though of course that's just my preference. I don't get the big fuss about physical buttons.

      Wrong article. Well, this is awkward.

    Lame! You can't start over? I'm halfway done online! Bahhhh

    Colleen from TurboTax here. If you haven't filed your taxes, you can still take advantage of this offer. You just need to download the app and start your return today. The app will not transfer information if you have already started online or other way. You can start from the beginning though. Also, you don't need to file this weekend, just start a return.
