IBM's Watson Will Help You File Your Taxes

Who cares about IBM's Watson helping you file your taxes? All I want to know is who is going to help me when I get audited because of Watson?

IBM is partnering with H&R Block to make Watson a part of the tax filing process at locations across the US starting on February 6th. After you participate in an initial interview, the artificial intelligence will offer suggestions to Tax Pros (read: experts) looking for deductions, and illustrate the bigger picture for you on a dedicated client screen. Ideally, Watson's ability to understand context and intent will turn your statements into tangible data that leads to bigger tax breaks.
