Taxfyle is mobile application which will get you a tax professional in seconds. If uber is for hiring taxis then taxfyle is for professional accountants.The application requires basic information from the customer and photographs of tax documents after submitting them a user gets a certified CPA who does paper work and asks follow up questions. The photos can be take in 1099 or W2 format. The seven month old app was developed by Lavina who claims it as the “uber for accounts”. The app has been adjurned as the best new app in app store by Apple.There are 300 CPAs readily available on call 24/7 on the app. The CEO of the company says that Taxfyle has an army of CPAs and connects with customers at the cheapest rates.
The time requirement to process the request is also very fast. It takes one minute to submit tax data and 1.5 minute for a CPA to take up the request and the entire paperwork is completed within a day. Filing of tax costs $49 and adding itemized prize brings it to $100 and $3 for additional three years audit protection.The competition to taxfyle is tada by turbotax that works in similar style. Their costs start at $40 to file state and federal tax returns. But Lavina feels that tada is not eating into their territory of customers.Tada is planning to move beyond a CPA firm and provide bookeping, payroll and auditing services.
