Intuit TurboTax Drops Out of IRS Free File

We're live from the Big Easy, and we're talking about Intuit dropping out of the IRS Free File program, as well as how a startup called Ivix aims to help governments catch tax evaders around the world. There's more voicemail feedback on the CPA issue, and in app news, Relay Financial releases advanced bill pay, accounting startup Proper raises $9 million to do the books for property managers, and we've got updates from Xero, QuickBooks, Apple, and more!
