Thanks to the new mobile version of online tax assistant TaxTim, you don’t even need a smartphone to chat with TaxTim, any regular feature phone will do.
A simple and effective tax assistant, TaxTim is the brainchild of young and brilliant South African entrepreneurs, Marc Sevitz, a qualified CA and tax specialist, and Evan Robinson, an inventor and software developer, who after being selected to join the national Google Umbono programme in 2011, created a fun, easy and fast online tax return solution for anyone confused about tax
“Our goal is to ensure that every South African has access to simple and efficient tax assistance when and where they need it. A significant market exists who want to start filing tax returns, but have only limited connectivity to the web. To this end we are happy to announce the beta release of our mobi site offering all the functionality of the full-sized offering and compatible for use on all mobile phones with internet connectivity,” says Evan Robinson, co-founder of TaxTim.
“Currently about 16% of users on our site are browsing via their mobiles (close to the 17% national average), but as we start providing our service as a benefit to Employee Wellness Programmes that assist lower income earners such as factory workers and mineworkers we have found more people recognising the need for a mobile version,” adds Marc Sevitz, co-founder of TaxTim.
To use the TaxTim mobi site, simply visit www.taxtim.com on your phone browser and the site will adjust to the small screen.
