Are you anxiously awaiting your income tax refund? The Internal Revenue Service has embraced technology and is now offering an app that allows you to check the status of your refund on your iPhone or Android smartphone.
Just go to the iTunes store (or Android Marketplace) to download the free IRS2Go app. It just takes a few seconds to download.
Of course if you took advantage of free income tax preparation and filing through your local VITA or TaxAide partner, you already know when to expect your refund. If you filed by Wednesday, then your direct deposit would be in your bank account the second Friday. A paper check would be mailed the third Friday and would likely arrive a few days later. This schedule is true for the entire tax season.
For more information, visit IRS.gov or search for the IRS2Go app in the iTunes store or Android Marketplace.
