It’s that time of year again: tax time. If the American government is asking you for more money it isn’t so great, but when the tables are turned and you are the one expecting a fat check it truly is a joyous season. Found out Uncle Sam owes you bookoo bucks and can’t wait for the check to arrive at your door? The IRS is trying to stay up with the times with the introduction of their IRS2Go app for smartphones.

What basically amounts to a mobile version of the IRS Refund Status website, IRS2Go allows you to find out the status of your check by entering your social security number, filing status, and the amount you expect to receive. If you file your taxes online the information is available within 72 hours. Paper filings, however, can take three to four weeks to register.

So if you fall into that lucky class of US citizens that should be getting some money back, stay on top of your return’s status anywhere you go. The app is in the Android Market now.
