Tax season is upon us, but don't get too down about it just yet. The new Intuit TaxLink app might make it slightly less awful. This is an app that makes communication and document transfer with your accountant faster and easier. Of course, you need to have an accountant first.
In order to use this app, your accountant must be an Intuit Online user, and will invite you to use the service. Then you can install the app and get things in order. Intuit TaxLink lets you take pictures of the relevant documents, like W-2s and 1099s and have them sent right to your accountant. You can also view the status of your return through the app as it is being worked on.
The app looks mostly well-designed with a slide-out navigation menu and tabs. Although, there is a legacy menu button of shame. The app is free to use on your end, though.
