The first smartphone application, IRS2Go, lets taxpayers check on the status of tax refunds and obtain helpful tax information.
“This new smartphone app reflects our commitment to modernizing the agency and engaging taxpayers where they want when they want it,” said IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman. “As technology evolves and younger taxpayers get their information in new ways, we will keep innovating to make it easy for all taxpayers to access helpful information.”
Apple uses can download the free IRS2Go app by visiting Apple App Store. Android users can visit the Android Marketplace to download the free IRS2Go app.
“This phone app is the first step for us,” Shulman said. “We will look for additional ways to expand and refine our use of smartphone and other technologies to help meet the needs of taxpayers.”
