    The IRS makes it easy for us to track our tax refund by using a smartphone. The service is called IRS2Go and is nothing more than a service that replaces making a call to the IRS and substantially reduces waiting on hold time on your phone from an hour to a few clicks. It is good that the IRS is making a first step to make it easy for us to connect to them. They have also made significant strives to make it easy for us to file our taxes, especially if you have income under $58,000 then you may be able to prepare and e-file your income tax return for free. There are also least 100 websites that let you e-file both for free and for less than what you would pay to a preparer. If you are able search on Google or complete a loan application or college application for yourself or child, then you may be able to prepare your own tax return on line for free.This works only if you have a simple tax retrun.
