Here’s what you can do with the redesigned IRS Smartphone app IRS2Go, version 4.0, available in English and Spanish:telephone - red retro

Check your tax refund status.  The new version of IRS2Go includes an easy-to-use tax refund status tracker so taxpayers can follow their tax refund status step-by-step throughout the IRS process. Just enter your Social Security number, filing status and your expected tax refund amount. You can start checking on your tax refund status 24 hours after the IRS confirms receipt of an e-filed return or four weeks after you mail a paper return. Since the IRS posts tax refund updates on a daily basis, there’s no need to check the status more than once each day.

Find free tax preparation.  You may qualify for free tax help through the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance or Tax Counseling for the Elderly programs. A new tool on IRS2Go will help you find a VITA location. Just enter your ZIP code and select a mileage range to see a listing of VITA/TCE sites near you. Select one of the sites and your Smartphone will show an address and map to help you navigate.

Get tax records. You can request a copy of your tax bill or a transcript of your tax return using IRS2Go. The post office will deliver to your address on record.

Stay connected.  You can interact with the IRS by following the IRS on Twitter @IRSnews, @IRStaxpros and @IRSenEspanol. You can also watch IRS videos on YouTube, register for email updates or contact the IRS using the “Contact Us” feature.
