EY is an award-winning, on-demand, mobile tax preparation service that connects you to EY tax professionals who will prepare your taxes and file them for you.
Different category than DIY Tax Apps
EY first launched this product back in 2017 as an employee benefit for large US employers. Unlike do-it-yourself tax software, EY offers licensed tax professionals who prepare and file customers’ individual federal and state returns through a convenient digital platform. The new app is rolled out with mirrored web-to-app interfaces for easy switching between devices and customer service support via both chat and phone.
EY TaxChat brings taxpayers:
Versatility: Ideal for those whose returns are complex or those who have outgrown do-it-yourself filing options.
Convenience: Accessible anytime, anywhere, through the TaxChat app or online.
Insight: Takes the guess work out of tax and provides the ability to chat securely with a dedicated, knowledgeable EY tax advisor.
Value: High-quality client service delivered at a reasonable price.
As finances get complicated…
Dina Pyron, Financial Services Partner and Global TaxChat leader at EY explains: “Whether you start your own business, become an independent contractor, earn side income from a rental or shift your lifestyle from being a single renter to a married homeowner with children, preparing and filing your taxes can become time consuming and confusing.
“EY has more than 100 years of experience serving the tax needs of some of the world’s most complex companies and successful individuals,” said April Spencer, Americas Business Tax Leader including EY Personal Finance. “With TaxChat we can bring EY knowledge and experience to help even more individuals file their taxes with ease and confidence. TaxChat gives users the combined benefits of simplicity, convenience and mobility to make it easy for filers to comply with federal and state tax laws."
