About this app

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.

Download IRS2Go and connect with the IRS whenever you want, wherever you are.

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.

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.

The app does it's job and does it well. The user needs to have their expected refund dollar amount on hand for the tax filling year. You need to have your 1040 available or have the expected or refunded amount recorded somewhere. If you don't have that exact figure, it won't find the information. The previous three tax filling years are available to look up.

I've been checking this app every day since I filed and it hasn't changed from Accepted. Today, my refund hit my bank but the app still doesn't even say it was approved. What's the point of offering the app if it doesn't get updated?

What's new

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

We've added under the "Tax Help" tab a link to the new Direct File website that will allow taxpayers in states that are eligible to file directly with the IRS for free.
