IRS issues new phone app to track refunds

Jan 24, 2011

(AP) -- For people who just can't enough of the Internal Revenue Service, the federal tax collection agency is coming out with a new phone app.

The app, called IRS2Go, allows to track their tax refunds and get tax tips form the IRS. It's free, and available for people who use iPhones or Androids.

IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman said the IRS is using the app to become more accessible to taxpayers. For other tech-savvy taxpayers, the agency produces videos for YouTube, and has a Twitter news feed.

The agency said personal tax information is encrypted, so taxpayers can safely access it. Taxpayers can download the IRS app at the App Store, or the Marketplace.
