(Newser) – Filers with uncomplicated taxes can take care of business in a matter of minutes—by smartphone, of course. Intuit's $15 Snap Tax app works on iPhones and Android phones by taking a photo of the filer's W-2, then using that data to fill out the form, explains the New York Times. After the filer checks things over, it ships the form to the IRS. Only 1040EZ filers who make less than $80,000 can use it. The app was out last year in more limited fashion, but improved image-recognition technology gives it a wider range this year.
