A Miami-based startup has launched Taxfyle, an iPhone app aimed at Millennials that allows them to connect with a network of 300 CPAs who can help them prepare and file their taxes.

The Taxfyle app is available on the Apple App Store. Users download the app, take photos of their forms if they have them, answer a few yes or no questions, and receive a quote from a CPA who will file their taxes within seven days. Customers are automatically enrolled in Taxfyle’s audit protection plan.

“Tax season can be one of the most stressful times of the year, and it's exactly when Americans need the guidance of an experienced tax professional, which Taxfyle delivers with the press of a button,” says Taxfyle cofounder and CEO Richard Lavina in a statement.

Prices start at $49. The company hopes to become the “Uber for taxes,” although at least one other startup company, Taxaroo, has also laid claim to that title (see Taxaroo Aims to be Uber for Tax Preparers). Another new company called TaxChat is billing itself as an Uber for Taxes and provides a mobile app for connecting taxpayers with a network of tax preparers.
