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.

2022 and it still runs perfectly. No updates, no changes, no problems. Other app devs should strive for this level of zen perfection in their apps. Old review: Does what it says and nothing else. Does not run in the background. Does not use data. I've left it installed since 2017 and it has not used data nor run in all that time and it is small. THIS is how simple single purpose apps should work. And stay. Simple. No bloat. No ads.

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.

App is useless. It doesn't give status of return, and doesn't give options of what to do if it can't find a status. The phone number option doesn't work either since the dialer doesn't work. Glad to see tax dollars hard at work on sup par products. But the website really insists on you using the app.
