submitted on January 27, 2011 by orangearrows in "Products / Gadgets", last updated on January 31, 2011 by YanBz
This week, the Internal Revenue Service rolled out IRS2Go, the first smartphone application created by the agency.



IRS Commissioner Shulman said of it: "This new smartphone app reflects our commitment to modernizing the agency and engaging taxpayers where they want when they want it. As technology evolves and younger taxpayers get their information in new ways, we will keep innovating to make it easy for all taxpayers to access helpful information."

The app, which is available for free at the Apple App Store and the Android Marketplace, allows taxpayers to try several features formerly available only on the IRS website. Those features include:
1. "Where's My Refund?"
2. Sign Up For Tax Updates.
3. Follow the IRS on Twitter.
4. Contact the IRS

      Tell me about it. I finally got them off my back about my first time homebuyers credit. They kept asking for proof that the new home is my primary residence.
