New App Lets Canadians File Taxes with a Photo

Quickly File Taxes via your iPhone or Android Device by snapping a photo of your files for $24.99

EDMONTON, March 1, 2016 /CNW/ - Snapfile ("Snapfile Inc.") today announced the launch of Canada's first mobile E-File Tax App that manages the filing process with the help of photos. Images of T4s and other tax forms are transmitted securely to Canadian Tax Professionals, who do the work.

"We've spent years looking for the simplest way for Canadians to file their taxes. No one likes dealing with complicated software or making a trip to a tax services office," says David Schwede, CEO of Snapfile, who recently auditioned the company for Dragons' Den.

Users answer basic profile questions before taking a photo of their files with their phone. Tax Professionals prepare the submission. Users sign the prepared files on their phone using their finger. The service starts at $24.99.

"Our mission is to get our customers the maximum return as effortlessly and economically as possible. We joke that filing on your phone is the best way to give your taxes the finger. It just takes a few taps," says Richard Houghton, CTO of Snapfile.

Snapfile is currently able to process taxes in all provinces and territories excluding Quebec. Learn more at and download the App on Apple's App Store or the Google Play Store.
