Official IRS app lets you track your refund

The Internal Revenue Service app IRS2GO allows taxpayers to check on the status of their tax refund and access other features.  IRS2GO also allows payments through an ACH debit from your checking or savings account (which is known as IRS Direct Pay), by debit card with a flat rate service fee ranging from $2.50 to $3.95, or by credit card with percentage based fees.  Government Technology has some more details about the app:
Where's My Tax Refund?
IRS Mobile App Simplifies Federal Tax Refund Tracking IRS2Go proves useful to taxpayers looking for refund answers and assistance in tax filing.
The IRS is trying to take some of the sting out of tax time with a mobile app that allows for simplified payment and refund tracking services.
The official application, called IRS2Go, allows users to check the status of their refunds, make payments and access free tax preparation services from a compatible smartphone.
Mobile users are also tied into a host of other resources, like instructional videos and tax tips through the agency’s social media pages and direct contact functions.
Refund status is reportedly available to taxpayers as soon as 24 hours after filing electronically and roughly four weeks after filing a return by mail...
The app, which was originally announced in January 2011, is available through the Apple App Store, Google Play and Amazon.
