What's the difference between TurboTax Online and the mobile app?

SOLVEDby TurboTaxTurboTax Online154Updated January 05, 2022

Although TurboTax Online and the mobile app function similarly and support the same tax forms, here are the main differences:

  • You can snap a photo of your W-2 in the mobile app, which will automatically enter it on your return
  • The mobile app doesn't have Print Center or Tax Tools

You can switch between TurboTax Online and the mobile app to take advantage of each's unique features.

For example, if you're using TurboTax Online and want to snap a picture of your W-2, install the TurboTax app, sign in, and snap away. You can then resume work in TurboTax Online.
