Your clients can use the TaxCaddy app for iPhone and Android to complete the questionnaire when it’s convenient for them.
More than 300 banks, brokerages and payroll service providers can be linked to automatically retrieve 1098s, 1099s and W-2s as soon as they’re issued. Because the documents are available to you immediately, you can start the return sooner than ever before.

A TaxCaddy user
TaxCaddy is very easy to use. I have been with my tax guy for over 30 years. A couple of years ago he moved to an online process that made me feel like I was doing my own taxes. That’s what I pay him for. I don’t want to do it. At the time I considered finding a new accountant. Since I had been with him for decades, I gave him another shot. Then came TaxCaddy and his long term client was saved.
