WASHINGTON — As the final stretch of the 2012 tax filing season unfolds, the Internal Revenue Service reminds taxpayers that they can get valuable last-minute tips by following the IRS on Twitter.
The IRS Twitter news feed, @IRSnews, provides the latest federal tax news and information for taxpayers. The focus of the IRS Twitter messages is on easy-to-use information, including tax tips, tax law changes, and important IRS programs such as e-file, getting a filing extension and “Where’s My Refund.”
The IRS plans a special series of tweets in English and Spanish as the April 17 tax deadline approaches.
Anyone with a Twitter account can follow @IRSnews by going to https://twitter.com/IRSnews. Taxpayers can also follow the IRS Twitter news feed using IRS2Go, a free smartphone application available for Apple and Android devices.
The IRS also tweets tax news and information in Spanish at @IRSenEspanol. Follow this Twitter feed by going to https://twitter.com/IRSenEspanol.
