How about investing a portion of your federal tax return check in a fresh smartphone? You can buy a low-priced, unlocked smartphone from NUU Mobile – with great cameras, a powerful operating system and plenty of battery – for a lot less than you might think.
Smartphones have come a long way in just a couple years. Now even budget phones feature multiple cameras, high-tech communications like Android Pay, and batteries that last all day. Think about using a portion of your tax return this year to:
- Upgrade your current smartphone. Step up to a faster and better phone with more capabilities. Improve your life with bigger batteries, better cameras and selfies, dual-SIM capabilities, and high-tech features like fingerprint ID and facial recognition at lower-than-expected prices;
- Purchase a smartphone as a gift. Unlocked, inexpensive smartphones make great presents for family members. Plus, NUU Mobile offers a wide range of reliable, high-tech, affordable phones for the entire family;
- Buy an inexpensive smartphone as a backup device. If you rely upon your smartphone daily, spend a small part of your tax rebate on an inexpensive backup.
Owning your own unlocked smartphone gives you options. With a NUU Mobile phone in your hand, you can save money by shopping for the network service deal that fits your budget best. When you have an unlocked phone, you aren’t wedded to any particular service provider.

Now You Can File Your Federal Tax Returns on Your Smartphone
Speaking of smartphones and taxes, did you know you can file your tax returns using your smartphone? The two most popular tax-refund services, H&R Block® and TurboTax®, each offer free apps that let you file your simple tax returns for free using your smartphone.
The apps let you upload a photo of your completed 1040EZ W-2 form, so you don’t have to re-type the information. Both companies also offer paid services that include tax consultations via video and filing assistance. The free tax-help apps, which also are available for your tablet, include:
- H&R Block. This easy-to-use program guides you through completion of your tax return. With the paid version, your cost to file depends upon the services you need. Choose from Free, Deluxe, Premium and Self-Employed.
- TurboTax. File your simple tax returns for free with this app. Speak with a consultant for free review. With the paid version, the software searches more than 350 possible deductions to see if they apply to you.
- IRS2Go. The Internal Revenue Services’ official app lets you make a payment, check your refund status or find free tax help. Also provides IRS news updates. No bloatware, no ads, and it doesn’t run in the background.
If you choose to file your taxes using your smartphone, make sure you delete the photo of your W-2 from your phone once you’ve filed. You don’t want anyone who gains temporary access to your phone to see or copy your W-2 information.
