If you always turn up at your tax agent or accountant’s office with a shoebox of receipts and a lot of hope, you should get your hands on the Taxation in Australia app.
The newly developed app is the iPad version of the monthly journal of the same name, published by The Tax Institute.
According to the Institute, it developed the app to aid the 77 per cent of Australians who seek expert advice for lodging their income tax return each year and the taxation professionals.
Also known as the Blue Journal, it features all the published articles with a strong, practical approach to the latest tax issues and professional development, including additional content.
The first edition includes capabilities that include: detailed author profiles, instant article feedback, video and podcasts, interactive calendars, event notices, charts and diagrams.
Other features include access to Twitter feeds and the latest tax news, updated daily, article sharing via email, FaceBook or Twitter, bookmarking of articles, access to reference notes and a free member paper. Further refinements are planned for the next edition.
Cons: What’s not to like about getting free tax advice?
Verdict: Keeps professionals ahead of the game.
