Want to track your IRS tax refund on the go? Yes, there's an app for that. The IRS (Internal Revenue Service) now offers an app to keep tabs on the status of your tax refund and also allows you to get tax updates, and tax tips in language you can easily understand.

According to IRS.gov:

IRS has launched IRS2Go, a smartphone application that lets you interact with the IRS using your mobile device. IRS2Go reflects IRS' commitment to help you get the information you need—whenever you need it, wherever you are.

Get Your Refund Status

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 2010 tax return. If you e-file your return, you can check your refund status within a few days. If you file a paper tax return, you will need to wait three to four weeks to check your refund status because it takes longer to process a paper return.

Get Tax Updates 

You can also use IRS2Go to subscribe to filing season tax updates by entering your e-mail address to automatically get daily tax tips. Tax Tips can help you with your tax planning and preparation needs. They are issued daily during the tax filing season and periodically during the rest of the year. The plain English updates cover topics such as free tax help, child tax credits, the Earned Income Tax Credit, education credits and other topics.

Follow the IRS

Finally, you can use IRS2Go to sign up to follow the IRS Twitter news feed, @IRSnews. IRSnews provides the latest federal tax news, including information about tax law changes and important IRS programs.

Download the IRS2Go App

If you have an Apple iPhone or iTouch, you can download the free IRS2Go app by visiting the iTunes app store. If you have an Android device, you can visit the Android Marketplace to download the free IRS2Go app.

IRS2Go is a new way to provide you with information and tools. The IRS also uses YouTube and Twitter to share the latest information on tax law changes, initiatives, products and services through social media channels.
