Shortly after Shane Brion filed a federal income tax return online, he didn’t have to look any further than his iPhone to find out when he and his wife, Mirya, should be getting their refund.
“I got my status pretty quick on the app,” said Brion, 30, who is a branch manager for JPMorgan Chase in Ypsilanti.
Everybody has some sort of application, including the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS allows smartphone app users to get updates on their income tax refunds — and enter their e-mail address so that they can receive daily advice.
Apple users can download the free IRS2Go application at the Apple App Store; Android users can go to the Android Marketplace.
