Tax Tip 2017-93: Taxpayers and Tax Preparers Can Connect with the IRS Over Social Media

Taxpayers and Tax Preparers Can Connect with the IRS Over Social Media

The IRS uses social media tools to share the latest information about taxes, as well as about services offered to taxpayers. With just a couple months before people start filing their taxes, it’s the perfect time for taxpayers and tax preparers to connect with the IRS through these social media tools:


Taxpayers can use this app to get quick access to IRS social media, sign up for helpful tax tips, check their refund status and make a payment. IRS2Go is available in both English and Spanish for Android and iOS mobile devices.


Tune in to the IRS YouTube channels to watch short, information videos about a range of tax topics. Videos are in English, Spanish and American Sign Language.


IRS tweets highlight information for individual taxpayers, as well as businesses, tax preparers and tax-exempt organizations. The IRS uses three Twitter accounts:


The IRS Tumblr blog provides current tax information.


The IRS Return Preparer Facebook page posts useful information for tax professionals.

Audio files for Podcasts

Taxpayers can subscribe to IRS Podcasts on iTunes or download them from the Multimedia Center.


People can sign up for free e-News subscriptions on many topics. This news is delivered straight to their inbox.

All taxpayers should remember the IRS uses these tools to share public information. So, taxpayers should not post their social security number or other confidential information on social media sites. Additionally, the IRS is not able to answer personal tax or account questions on any of these sites.
