MONTREAL, March 20, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - After having launched an app for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, optimized the Tax Planning Guideʼs website (http://en.planiguide.ca/) for BlackBerry and Android platforms and created a tax calculator that uses the individual's financial profile to determine his or her tax rate, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton innovates once again by adding geolocation to their mobile app.
"The Tax Planning Guide has been providing taxpayers with tax planning information to help them prepare their tax returns for 29 years now. This unique and versatile tool makes finding tax information easier, presenting it in a practical and innovative format. We are proud to be able to provide individuals with up-to-date tax information which allows them to avoid nasty surprises. It goes without saying that our instinct for growth constantly pushes us to strive for excellence," said Partner and National Tax Director, Jean Gauthier.
The geolocation feature now gives users quicker access in both French and English to tax measures relevant to their province of residence. The tax calculator has also been upgraded and can now be used with Ontario and New Brunswick tax tables.
From the Tax Planning Guide's Web page (http://en.planiguide.ca/), individuals can download the mobile application by following the iTunes App Store link, get a PDF version of the guide or view additional tax-related information, such as a video capsule entitled "When the Entrepreneur is at one with his Business" (www.rcgt.com/en/tax-initiative-2013) that the Firm has just put together.
