Tax day in the United States is Tuesday, April 18th this year. That means you have until then to file your taxes or you will face some penalties for being late.

Filing taxes isn’t my favorite thing to do and I imagine that the same goes for everyone else. If you haven’t filed your taxes yet, TurboTax has a pretty sweet deal going on if you start your taxes by tomorrow. By downloading the TurboTax app for Android, you can prepare and file your taxes for free.

The company says that you can save up to $67, so its’ definitely nothing to sniff at:

For a limited time, TurboTax for Android is FREE for taxpayers to download and FREE to prepare and file their US federal and state returns, a $67+ value. All you have to do is start a new return with TurboTax for Android between March 30th and April 1st, then you can prepare and file for free. It’s that easy!

Unfortunately, this is an Android-only special, but if you have a device running Google’s mobile OS, you’re in luck. The app itself is pretty easy to use and will bring you along with everything you need to know about getting the biggest refund you possibly can. The app is also optimized for Android tablets, so this will work for the Kindle Fire as well:
