This new version of IRS2Go has a brand new look and feel with new added features. It is available in both English and Spanish.
You can check the status of your federal income tax refund using IRS2Go. Simply enter your Social Security number, which will be masked and encrypted for security purposes, then select your filing status and enter the amount of your anticipated refund from your 2013 tax return. A status tracker has been added so you can see where your tax return is in the process. If you filed your return electronically, you can check your refund status within a 24 hours after we receive your return. If you file a paper tax return, you will need to wait about four weeks to check your refund status because it takes longer to process a paper return.
You can request your tax return or account transcript using your smartphone. IRS2Go allows you to request this information, which will be mailed to you within several business days.
Free Tax Prep Providers
The IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and the Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) Programs offer free tax help for taxpayers who qualify. You can use this brand new tool to help you find a VITA site right near your home. You simply enter your zip code and select a mileage range. To make it even more convenient if you click on the directions button within the results the maps application on your device will load with the address, making it easy to navigate to your desired location.
You can interact with the IRS by following them on Twitter, watching helpful videos on YouTube, sign up for email updates, or contacting them.
