be careful

I went to download this app March 2013, and noticed when it asked permissions while installing, it said I am giving the owners/developers the right to use my phone to call anywhere, except emergency numbers "without" my interference. Why does the IRS need to be able to call anywhere on my phone without my permission??? I did not download it. I would check into it if I were you

IRS2GO

This app is nothing more than a service that replaces making a call to the IRS to find out when you will receive your tax refund and substantially reduces your 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. If you do, 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 return.
