Check your refund status, make a payment, find free tax preparation assistance, sign up for helpful tax tips, and follow the latest news from the IRS - all in the latest version of IRS2Go.

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.

I am absolutely devastated. I made two payments, in Aug and Sept 2023, through this app. At the time, like a total fool, I did not look for a confirmation number. I saw the amounts had been debited and I marked down that those tax payments had been paid. Fast forward to 3 weeks ago, and I received a letter from the IRS saying I owed taxes. When I called, they told me they never received these 2 payments. My bank is currently investigating, but I stand to have lost nearly 6k over this. Terrible!!

Very dangerous. Twice now, I've opened the app, and it had my return info filled in from the previous session. Granted, the first 5 of the social security number are censored, the last 4 aren't. The app won't give info on return unless I force close it and open it again, but the fact that I have to do that despite the app not running in the background to begin with is concerning.

What's new

Looking for refund status from a previous tax year? You can check prior-year refund status with IRS2Go.
