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.

    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

    not sure if anyone else is having this problem.... but i e-filed through hr block and signed up for direct deposit and when app said return accepted and approved it said refund will be "mailed" march 2-30... I signed up for direct deposit with hr blocks emerald card. idk if it means the same to them; will be "mailed" or will be "direct deposited" but I filed on 2-12 so not knowing where it's at or what's going on is upsetting ..

    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

    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

    All my info is 10000% correct and it's just telling me my information entered does not match their records. Based on the reviews other people have had the same problem. 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

    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

    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.

    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

    Useless app!! Keep entering the correct information and no matter what it still shows" incorrect information entered" even though all my info is correct. I filed on 2/11/18 and still nothing to this date. 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

    Useless. Provides absolutely no information about literally anything. You're better off predicting your return by smashing your face into the wall then trying the scry your bloody teeth. Full Review

    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

    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

    I wasn't sure it was working because it stayed on step 1 for some time, after about two weeks, it processed to what i needed to know. Thank you for doing what you said in a safer way. Full Review

    Eric Holmes Published date: February 22, 2018

    Kinda crappy when you're all u get is a couple of times to check ur status on the return you're waiting for. Very frustrated when it is overnight. Every other government check is sent out at 1201am. This is typical of our government as usual. Slow to get done. Full Review

    Tone Gaskins Published date: February 10, 2018

    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
