IRS app tracks refund, gives tax tips
The Internal Revenue Service has released a new smartphone app to help people track their tax refunds and get daily tax tips from the agency.
The app, called IRS2Go, launched Monday. It is free and available at the Android and Apple marketplaces.
To track refunds, users can enter their social security number and other identifying tax information over a secured, encrypted server. E-filers can track their refunds in about 72 hours after receiving an acknowledgment that the IRS has received their return.
For those filing paper tax returns, longer processing times mean they will need to wait three to four weeks before they can check their status.
To really stay on top of your taxes the techy way, follow @IRSNews on Twitter for more tax tips.
