‘Tis the season for taxes in the United States. If that April 15th deadline is breathing down your neck, or that e-filed paperwork is giving you the sweats, the IRS’s new app may provide a little relief.
IRS2Go is a smartphone app that allows users to check the statuses of their federal income tax refunds, sign up for tax tips, find experts, and more. If you e-filed your taxes, the status of your refund will be available within 24 hours. Paper tax return information will take about four weeks to hit the app.
IRS2Go also connects you with the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance and Tax counseling for the Elderly programs, which both provide advice and assistance in filing if you’re stumped. It’s available in both English and Spanish and for Apple and Android.
