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.

    At first it said my information was wrong, then it shows it's accepted, then the next day it says you have to wait because of the child tax credit and check back Mid to late February. Then last night i checked it the system says it was down, now today it says my information is wrong on the 12 of Feb. I never had this problem before and I've been using this app for YEARS! My tax money should not be this difficult to receive. Full Review

    Very good app. Only thing I wish it had was if it told you when they last updated the refund status. It says they update it no more than once a day, but don't say when it was last done. Overall it's a great app to use. Full Review

    It's useless when it wont even let me use it. It claims my information doesn't match their records but it's not wrong. I've used the same information every damn year except my return amounts which aren't wrong either. I've triple checked. Full Review

    It sucks!!! I put in my information three separate times and it kept saying "Information did not match our records". I put in the correct social, filing status, and state amount 3 times. It is useless. Full Review

    I'm having the same problem I see others have, with it saying Im entering the wrong information when I know for sure I'm not. Frustrating! And for those who think this is happening because we're doing it wrong, no. Ive used this app for years and I know exactly how to use it. Its literally just not working for some reason! Full Review

    No matter the amount I enter, it is incorrect and won't let me see the status of my refund. Possibility of human error, yes, but I have all of my correct amounts. Whatever. I'm just being impatient. Full Review

    Donna Baldwin Published date: February 10, 2018

    Works perfectly and quickly...just like using the "Where's My Refund?" on the IRS website. ..3 simple things to fill in...Social Security Number of primary filer, Filing Status, and exact amount of Federal refund from your tax return. Full Review

    Marci Tipton Published date: February 12, 2018

    I already received my refund. I'm now watching my mom's. I input her info, but then the data for my refund appears. I cleared history / forced stop - it says I've inquired too many times for my mom's info when I've yet to see hers. The irs kept over $20k of mine - can you invest a few dollars of that to get decent developers? Full Review

    originally it kept saying information wrong. I've used this app on previous years, never had a problem...that I realized putting in full refund amount, not just Federal. Than it worked fine Full Review

    shelley Dalton Published date: February 5, 2018

    Was working when I first downloaded it but now all it says is refunds won't be released until mid February for those that got the EIC or child tax, which is fine, I can wait, it just sucks that it won't tell u if ur refund has been approved or not like it used to, so if u got the child tax or EIC, dont even bother checking cuz the app is as useless as the IRS.

    This app is great to locate your tax return. Most people aren't entering the correct return. You need to enter your full return amount without the tax prep fees. Try it again!! Full Review

    It would be great if it actually worked. Instead it consistently tells me my information is incorrect. That's false. I know my filing status, refund amount, and social like the back of my hand. Thanks, Gov. Full Review

    What a joke. All it keeps saying is check back for an updated status... easy to believe this app is so useless with the current administration in Washington, in fact, being equally as useless. Full Review

    NOTE: Close the App, Restart and re-enter your details to get your status to update. I was watching it every morning, with no status change, then saw my refund post to my account; re-submitted my details (still no change), closed and restarted to get it to update. Full Review

    Its basic information would be a lot better if it was more detailed and information bout offsets or intercepting your refund by government backed collection agency that defeats the purpose of the app if it keeps stating your refunds in your account Full Review

    KEISHA HEDRICK Published date: February 14, 2018

    **Edit: works perfectly! As soon as u open the app u are directly on the page to enter the 3 pieces of info needed, results in 10 sec! Ppl, enter ONLY YOUR FEDERAL REFUND AMOUNT! I know this year, HRB calculated my taxes and gave me ONE refund amt;fed and state added together. But THERE'S A BREAKDOWN of the amounts, so look for your fed amt! Also, as an FYI for the ppl calling the app useless because it says to check back mid-to-late February, that's not the app; that's the IRS. And that goes for ANYONE who claimed earned income credit or the child tax credit. So blaming it on the app is kind of retarded LOL......................** It seems everyone in the reviews say they can't check their status because the info is incorrect. Then there's a few ppl calling THOSE ppl slow bc they aren't putting the federal amount only in...i would imagine this is like the website, where u need your fed refund amt ONLY to get your status. This is my 1st time downloading the app, haven't even opened it yet, but I will report back!! Full Review
