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 worked great last year. I was able to use it one time this year now i have an incorrect information message when i put in the same info as i did the first time... Not sure how that works. 😒 waste of time and space. Fix it my rating may go up but this is unacceptable. And for all of the people calling people stupid, can you explain why it worked once and now wont work at all? I didnt start checking until the first of February, more than 24 hours after i filed and im having issues. Soooo???

Filled out information 100% exactly as shown on tax return. Received an error that the information didn\'t match. Tried again. This time got an error that the network can\'t connect. Tried a third time. Finally got an error saying I\'ve \"exceeded the daily limit on inquiries, please try again tomorrow.\" Not sure why I\'m punished for the app not functioning properly. Tried TurboTax and got my refund status in less than 2 minutes. Ironically even the IRS website worked better than this app =(

It worked fine the last couple of years. But this year, I get what everyone else is getting. The information you entered does not match. I can\'t see the social security number when it\'s being entered, but being in the military a while ago, I know my social security number by heart. So I know it isn\'t that. Also, I checked turbo tax to see if I entered everything right with them. I did, so it\'s this app that has the problem.

Last year it worked well for me. This year it doesn\'t provide the status and just stays on the general information that is useless. It doesn\'t make sense because my friends and family that filed after me already received their refunds and this app tells them the same general useless information. Ridiculous!!

You can only track refund a few times in one day, is it accurate, i can\'t say but its not looking like so. After checking for updates 3 or 4 times in the day, it will prompt you that you have reached your maximum search for the day and to try again tomorrow, if I get the same service on the website, why the hell do I need this app that is not any different, I understand it is only updated once daily, usualy late night, it\'s just a space taker in my opinion.

Does not do what it says; does not tell me when I will get my refund. It repeats what I knew! It has been 24 weeks since I sent my tax forms. After 16 weeks I was sent form back saying it required an original signature. After 8 weeks I cannot find out anything about the return. Statement that refund is usually sent 21 days after receipt is a TOTAL LIE. Expect interest on extra time when I will receive it and the quoted 21 days.

Works great! Enter all the correct info and it will give u the date when your funds will be released to u! The first try it said incorrect info so I changed it on the second try and it went through! Great App! Just make sure your entering all the correct info and the exact dollar amount lol and it will work for u! Saves a lot of time not having to contact the IRS reg the status!

Doesn\'t work. I read many reviews that explain this in more detail - sigh 😕. OK as many have mentioned, the mismatch error pops up Even when it\'s not really a mismatch. Maybe it hasn\'t been 24 hours yet, or it has but there hasn\'t been update within the 24 hours that you need. It sounds like there is a daily limit you can request status. Also they do only update once A-day around midnight. Altogether not a workable app. Yet these folks give it 4 🌟 after listing issues???? I don\'t understand.

Very easy to walk through process if you don\'t have an extremely complicated tax return. I feel very confident with this app. I\'ve used it for several years and have had no problems. I didn\'t feel pressured to buy anything I didn\'t want to. There are offers. You may opt for help or extras if you feel you need them.

Bad . Filled out info and could Not see submit button for captcha from smart phone. IRS app is great. But the Captcha sucks and i wasted way to much time trying to ensure i got stimilus check for non filers on SSI. Must be done on PC. I filled out complaint form which says it will get back to you in 48 hours. Never happened ! But i have serious doubts i will see any cash anyway . You know the sarcasm of \"I am from the goverment and here to help you\" lmo
