TurboTax First to Deliver Android Tax Prep App to Mobile Tablet Customers

SAN DIEGO (March 06, 2012) – TurboTax®, the nation’s leading tax software, today announced a new app now available for Android tablets. Designed and optimized specifically for the Android platform, the app rounds out a robust suite of TurboTax mobile offerings. TurboTax is the only tax preparation software to offer customized, native apps, not just a browser experience, for the growing number of consumers who choose to prepare their taxes on a mobile or tablet device.

TurboTax for Android is among the first Android tablet apps from Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU), and is the first and only tax prep app designed specifically for Android tablets that enable taxpayers with simple and complex returns to prepare and e-file both their federal and state taxes completely from their tablet. For Android phone customers, SnapTax, a mobile app designed for a simple return (1040EZ) is also available.

The new TurboTax app gives users the freedom to work on their taxes anytime, anywhere, and without always being connected to the Internet. The TurboTax for Android app takes advantage of the tablet environment with a unique look and feel, easy navigation and automatically presents customized keyboards, on devices that support it, to make entering tax data easier and more intuitive.

Tax returns can be password protected for an extra layer of security. Customers can e-file their return directly from their tablet and get a refund in as little as seven days with direct deposit and can easily and securely email a copy of their return to their computer.

Once again, TurboTax apps combine the unparalleled ease of TurboTax with the convenience and portability of mobile devices so that taxpayers feel confident their taxes are done right.

Customers can download the app for free from the Android Market and pay when they’re done. Customers start in TurboTax Deluxe, for $29.99, and based on their tax situation, they can choose TurboTax Premier or TurboTax Home & Business for an additional cost. State tax preparation is additional. All pricing is subject to change and includes e-file at no additional cost.
