How do you do your taxes? More and more of us are just using a smartphone. I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. It’s getting down to crunch time for those who haven’t already filed their income taxes. Intuit’s TurboTax has been the top selling software for do it your selfers for years.

“One of the things that we’re seeing is just a tremendous increase in the number of people filing their tax returns on mobile devices. For those people who have simple returns, and we’re talking about sixty million Americans today have a relatively simple return which would include a wage statement from their employer and perhaps a bank statement.

SnapTax is available for iOS and Android and the basic version is free. You can find us at BootCamp.com. I’m Fred Fishkin.
