Uncle Sam Goes Mobile

As we ease in to 2011, many of us will find ourselves looking back at 2010, remembering good times, wondering what we could have done differently, and crunching year-end figures.  Tax time is here again.  Before we can pass from the winter chill into the green arms of spring, we must all go back and take one last look back and determine how large of a chunk Uncle Sam will get.  That is, unless you have a reliable business management company to do it for you.  

Regardless, this is the peak of the year for everyone’s favorite entity, the IRS.  Hoping to improve its public image, or to simply make a little less work for itself, the IRS has unveiled its latest technology today: IRS2GO.  Available to both Apple and Android users, this application will allow taxpayers to check the status of their refunds, get tips on how to prepare their taxes, and keep abreast of tax news.  The IRS even has a Twitter feed, to which IRS2GO connects tax payers.

The new application should make life, or at least paying taxes, a little easier for everyone.  The IRS claims that IRS2GO is only the first in a series of innovations they intend to pursue in order to keep up with modern technology.  You can check out the details for yourself here.
