IRS2Go is the official app of the Internal Revenue Service.


When installing IRS2Go, you may see a list of Android permissions that the app requests. To help you understand why we ask for certain permissions, we’ve provided a breakdown of the usage.

"Location – Uses the device’s location."
The app allows taxpayers to search for nearby Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and the Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) locations, which offer free tax help for taxpayers who qualify.

"Phone – Uses one or more of: phone, call log."
The app allows users to make phone calls to the IRS or VITA/TCE locations.

"Photos/Media/Files – Uses one or more of: files on the device, such as images, videos, or audio; the device’s external storage."
The Free Tax Help mapping feature uses these permissions to save map images and data to your phone's storage. This means that your phone won't need to download the same map data every time.

Doesn't work. I read many reviews that explain this in more detail - sigh 😕. OK as many have mentioned, the mismatch error pops up Even when it's not really a mismatch. Maybe it hasn't been 24 hours yet, or it has but there hasn't been update within the 24 hours that you need. It sounds like there is a daily limit you can request status. Also they do only update once A-day around midnight. Altogether not a workable app. Yet these folks give it 4 🌟 after listing issues???? I don't understand.

Works about how you would expect a government app to work. To find my refund status three simple fields were required: year (previous year, very obvious); social security number ( fully known to me for the last 50+ years) and filing status (single, no question very obvious). Then the whole dollar amount of the refund. I read it directly off a copy of my tax return. Again very straightforward with no room for error. Submit this information and: "Sorry wrong information. "

Worthless app but a great representation of the IRS. Filed over 3 months ago and our return is still "pending." Finally found a number to call through this app and spent 15 minutes on the phone going through automated messages only to be directed to check the app for more (nonexistent) information. Why even have an app like this if it doesn't do anything useful. Waste of time and space. Again, a great representation of the IRS
