TaxCaster by TurboTax by Intuit Inc. is a quick way to get an estimate on your 2012 tax refund by using your iPad.
The app has been designed to be simple and quick.
The taxcaster app is an interactive, free tax refund calculator that provides quick, accurate insights into how much you’ll get back or owe this year. Send your TaxCaster data over to this iphone tax app to pre-select questions and start filing.Simply enter in the basic information it's asking for and you'll see where you stand with a refund. The tax calculator used is the same one that TurboTax uses.
It should be noted that this app doesn't do your taxes for you. The point of this one is to give you an estimate of what your refund may be and to suggest a TurboTax product that would work well for your needs.
Use an estimate from the federal income tax app to get a quick read on your taxes before you prepare your tax return. TaxCaster doesn't prepare your taxes. You can use it to estimate your taxes, and then use a tax preparation app to prepare and file your taxes.
These estimates can be helpful in a number of ways. Before you even prepare your tax return you can adjust things such as your paycheck withholdings so in the long-run you can pay less tax.
This latest version of the app is now optimized for iPhone 5 and iOS 6. As well all the newest tax laws are used. Another addition to this version is the all new field help. The existing features were also improved for better performance.

I really liked how easy this app was to use. I was able to quickly fill in the fields and get an estimate of what to expect on my tax refund. Just as it suggested, this helped me prepare.
