IRS has created an Android app that will help you get up-to-date tax information and even track your refund check status all from your Android phone. Though the app is first from the department yet you will find it intuitive to use.
The IRS2Go Android app is a convenient way of checking on federal refund. The other top feature is the easy to understand tax tips available right on your Android phone.
Here is the list of features:
- Get Your Refund Status: If filed through e-file, the refund function of the Android app will work within about 72 hours after taxpayers receive an e-mail acknowledgment saying the IRS received their tax return. However, for people filing paper tax returns, longer processing times mean they will need to wait three to four weeks before they can check their refund status.
- Get Tax Updates: Enter e-mail address to automatically get daily tax tips.
- Follow the IRS: Taxpayers can sign up to follow the IRS Twitter news feed including tax law changes and important IRS programs.
