More than likely, you will have an income tax return whether you end up paying taxes or not. This process used to cause a major headache for many people and involved mailing a large stack of papers to the IRS. Then, you would have to patiently wait for a refund to be sent back to you. E-filing made the process much faster, but there was still no way to track a return once it was filed.

TurboTax now has a new mobile app that addresses the tracking problem. Instead of calling the help line at the IRS and sitting on hold waiting for someone to answer, you can use the MyTaxRefund app that is provided exclusively by TurboTax to know the status of your refund check in real time, right from your mobile device.

The latest version of the TurboTax app is easy-to-use and it will work if you have used TurboTax or another electronic filing service in the past. It is a great tool and it has received a 3-star rating on iTunes and a 4.5 star rating at the Google Play store.

When using the app, you just provide the same information as you would on the TurboTax online system that is used for laptops or desktop computers. By following just a few steps, you can get your refund in no time and always know the status of your submission.

This is both through the offering of advice as well as actual assistance.
