Tax Tip 2019-53, May 6, 2019
Whether they’re looking for tax info during National Small Business Week or any other time of the year, business owners can connect with the IRS over social media. In fact, the IRS just launched its newest Twitter account created to offer information directly to small businesses. The Twitter handle @IRSsmallbiz joins several other IRS accounts that small business owners can visit on social media sites.
Aside from the new @IRSsmallbiz account, taxpayers can also follow:
- @IRSnews posts tax-related announcements and tips
- @IRStaxpros tweets news and guidance for tax professionals
- @IRSenEspanol has the latest tax information in Spanish
- @IRSTaxSecurity tweets tax scam alerts
Small business taxpayers can get tax tips and helpful news from the IRS on Instagram. Just a few months ago, the agency debuted it’s official Instagram account, IRSNews, which users can access on their smartphone.
The IRS uses LinkedIn to share agency updates and job opportunities.
The IRS also has their own app, IRS2Go. Taxpayers can use this free mobile app to check their refund status, pay taxes, find free tax help, watch IRS YouTube videos and get IRS Tax Tips by email. Like Instagram, the IRS2Go app is available from the Google Play Store for Android devices or from the Apple App Store for Apple devices. IRS2Go is available in both English and Spanish.
