TurboTax brings its Online Tax Return app to the Windows Store

As tax day arrives here in the U.S., TurboTax is offering its Online Tax Return app in the Windows Store to help you file just in time. As announced by Microsoft last month, the TurboTax app helps you not only import all of your information with a couple of clicks, but it can find deductions you may have missed as well.


TurboTax can automatically pull in the information it needs from your W-2 and 1099 forms, and it even packs on-demand help from dedicated agents and CPAs if you get stuck. Here's a look at some of the app's highlight features:

  • Live on-screen video help with SmartLook™. Connect with a live TurboTax expert and watch as they guide you by drawing on your screen to get you the answers you need to file with confidence
  • Step-by-step guidance – answer simple questions and we'll double check as you go to help make sure there are no mistakes
  • Jumpstart your taxes by automatically importing your W-2 from over 1 million companies
  • Searches 350+ tax deductions and credits to maximize your refund (available in Deluxe, Premier and Self-Employed)

If you've ever used TurboTax's online filing system, all of this should look very familiar. To check out the app for yourself, you can grab it now from the Windows Store for free. Do be aware that you will be asked to pay to file, however.
