No one likes doing their taxes, but TurboTax thinks bringing their service to the iPad and making it mobile might also make the chore a little easier. With TurboTax 2011 for iPad, you can file your federal and state tax returns and receive your refund in as little as 7 days. If you've used TurboTax online, iPad or Desktop, you can transfer all your info, speeding up the process.
Now the question becomes, would you want to? As more and more finance and budget applications can be managed from mobile devices such as the iPad, it makes sense that companies like TurboTax and H&R Block will continue to make their content available to iPad users as well. While this may be ideal for filers with only a few forms, it still can't compete with desktop or pro versions of tax software that can maximize deductions in a way simple programs and applications can't yet do. If you've got a lot of forms to file and your taxes don't consist of a few W-2 forms and standard deductions, we'd still recommend a pro desktop suite or utilizing a licensed CPA or accountant.
TurboTax 2011 is available on the iPad for free.
