The creation of an ecosystem of data-connectivity vendors able to source income data on an ongoing basis poses a threat to self-serve tax-filing software like TurboTax, which does so only at tax time. These API-based vendors plug into embedded tax-filing apps that partner with banks and investing platforms to identify tax savings, optimize withholdings strategies, and fast-track refunds.
This type of support represents a service and convenience upsell for fintech platforms and institutions. It also helps drive user loyalty. Tax filing is transformed from a yearly chore to a real-time and rewarding exercise for consumers, who are able to align spending, borrowing, and investments to outcomes. Skeptical Generation X and Millennial investors, who may be just now starting to think about their retirement years, may be the first to be won over.
