TurboTax is a tax preparation software that allows users to file federal and state income tax returns online. The service was created by software developer Intuit with a step-by-step guide to tax filing so that even those with no previous tax knowledge can familiarize themselves with the system. It starts by asking users to provide data such as their occupation, number of children, charitable donations made, whether or not they own a home, and other similar information. TurboTax can also automatically fill up tax forms – users simply need to take a photo of their wage and tax statements and the  system will input the data by itself. Calculations made by TurboTax are said to be completely accurate and is backed by a service guarantee so that users can secure their respective tax refunds as fast as possible.

Boasting of simplicity and cost-effectiveness, many businesses find Digital Ocean’s hosting plans a great partner to their success, thanks to its low-priced products and high performance virtual machines that grow with your business.
