Handle Your Taxes on the Go with the Handy IRS2Go App

Gone are the days of long waits for info: with our smartphones, we can get the scoop on anything we want instantly, including taxes. Although you can always still give the IRS a ring, your best bet is to first check out the IRS2Go mobile app. Chances are, the app has the tax info and services you need, no telephone-hold Muzak required.

The IRS app is totally free and works on any iOS or Android device. You can download an English or Spanish version from Google Play, the Apple App Store, or the Amazon Appstore. With IRS2Go, you can:

  • Find Out Where the Heck Your Refund Is – In this age of package tracking and download progress bars, we’ve grown accustomed to being able to see just how much longer it’ll be until we get what we want. In the same vein, the IRS2Go app posts your federal tax refund status just 24 hours after you e-file, or 4 weeks if you mailed it in (and that, ladies and gentlemen, is why you should e-file).
  • Make a Panicked Payment – Out on the town having fancy drinks and suddenly realized that your tax payment is due today? No need to run around like a crazy chicken looking for a laptop to use – just whip out the IRS2Go app and send the IRS your money via IRS Direct Pay, or a payment directly from your bank account, or a debit/credit card payment. Don’t worry, if you don’t like panic attacks, you can also use the app to pay ahead of time.
  • Get Tips and Tricks – The IRS shares tons of great info about tax topics, and a lot of this can be found in a digestible format on their social media accounts. Instead of watching cute animals falling asleep, you could be using the IRS2Go app to watch helpful IRS Youtube videos, read IRS tweets, and stay connected by signing up for IRS tax tips via e-mail. (Okay, you can read some tax tips and then go back to the snoring puppy).
  • Free Tax Prep Assistance – Free is everyone’s favorite word. If you’re eligible, you can use the IRS2Go Free File tool to prep and file your taxes and get your refund process started – right through the phone that you already have in your hand.

Spread the love for the IRS2Go app on social media with the tag #IRSTaxTip. If more people know about this handy-dandy tool, even more features might be added, and we’ll all have more time to track the progress of our package while watching cute animal videos while out on the town.
