TaxACT Releases New Mobile App for Tracking Charitable Donations

TaxACT Releases New Mobile App for Tracking Charitable Donations 
Donation Assistant Simplifies Organizing, Valuing and Tracking
Donations for Tax Time 
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/26/14 --   TaxACT(R), the
critically acclaimed leader of affordable tax solutions, has released
a donation tracking app called Donation Assistant(R) by TaxACT. The
free app, available for Android and iOS, helps taxpayers track their
non-cash and cash donations throughout the year and maximize their
deductions at tax time. 
The most recent IRS data reports that more than one in four tax
filers deducts cash and non-cash charitable donations on their
federal income tax returns. 
Donation Assistant automatically organizes and tracks information
taxpayers need to report on their tax return to maximize tax
deductions for cash and non-cash donations. Users can also view
detailed summaries at any time from their mobile device. 
The app saves additional information the IRS recommends taxpayers
save to substantiate donations, including photos of donations and
receipts taken with the users' mobile device. 
To help taxpayers report accurate amounts for thrift store donations
and minimize audit risk, the app provides fair market values for more
than 1,300 commonly donated items, such as clothing, appliances, and
TaxACT's app also has the unique ability to track recurring gifts --
cash donations made on a regular basis, often monthly. 
Taxpayers can download the free app now to start tracking their 2014
donations. At tax time, data can be quickly and easily transferred to
TaxACT Deluxe 2014 for tax returns due April 2015. The information
will automatically transfer to the program's Donation Assistant tool,
calculate deduction amounts and complete Schedule A and Form 8283. 
More free apps for all taxpayers 
TaxACT's suite of mobile apps includes two apps that allow all
taxpayers to prepare, print and e-file their federal taxes free.
Taxpayers can start and e-file their returns anytime, anywhere --
from their smartphone, tablet or a web browser with the same username
and password. TaxACT's tablet supports all e-fileable forms for
simple and complex returns, while TaxACT Express(TM) for smartphones
is designed for simpler returns. 
The company also currently offers two companion apps. DocVault(TM) is
for securely organizing and saving tax documents, and TaxACT
Central(TM) contains time-saving resources for use before, during and
after filing with TaxACT. 
All apps are for iOS and Android. To learn more and download all of
