The IRS provides various taxpayer services via the smart phone app, IRS2Go. The app is available in English and Spanish, and it offers tax tips as well as help locating local Volunteer Income Tax Assistance and Tax Counseling for the Elderly.
Taxpayers can use the IRS2Go app to check the status of federal income tax refunds, as soon as 24 hours after filing electronically. Taxpayers who file the paper tax return can access refund status information in about four weeks after mailing the return.
Taxpayers who need to make payments to the IRS may use IRS2Go to pay by credit card or debit card or to access IRS Direct Pay, which is a free electronic payment method.
