If you want to install and use the IRS2Go app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type IRS2Go in the search bar and press Search. Click on IRS2Go application icon. A window of IRS2Go on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • Worked great!

    By Emilyanne1919
    I submitted my taxes not even two weeks ago. I owed the IRS a past debt of 800, this app went above and beyond to not only tell me that my return had been accepted but that my past debt was deducted from this year's return and that my remaining return would deposited to my bank. They gave me the exact date it would even be deposited. Way more information then I expected. I will definitely use this app next year.
  • Easy to use app!

    By nfrederick
    The app itself is well-designed and easy to use. I’ve never had any issues with it functioning as it should and providing me with the necessary information. The app isn’t supposed to provide any more information than the IRS page that provides the same purpose. I download this app each year after I submit my taxes!
  • Works

    By Big Mike 2041
    I’ve used it for years. It works as advertised. You save a few seconds versus webpage. It doesn’t cure cancer. Half the complaints are from people who’ve had bogus returns filed under their SS#. Everyone should get an Identity protection number. Do the work one year and you’ll get the CP01A annually indefinitely. Or you can write negative reviews of convenient apps. To each his own.
  • Looks Good

    By Infamaus
    This app functions as advertised. It provides immediate access to refund status without diving into the IRS website. It does ask for the same information as the website, including the expected refund amount. But that is not a shortcoming because IRS needs some sort of specific marker to know what year one is inquiring about.

  • I am over a week overdue

    By harleynerd
    And the app keeps telling me the same thing. Being processed. You would think that after the 21 day or less expectation that the IRS gives for an electronic refund, they would have more to say.
  • Always has errors.

    By NinaFV
    Enter info and I get the mismatch error. All the info is correct. Got a refund already but this app never worked. Same issue with the website.
  • Never

    By hdudnzodkzfdjsjak
    Not worth it doesn’t tell you anything just tells you to go to the website. Plus it doesn’t tell you exactly how many more days/weeks until your taxes arrive either. Again it tells you go to the site or it’s gonna tell you the same thing the tax people said to you at the end of your meeting.
  • Needs work

    By Papa BT
    Did not work. I put the correct info in and it came up with errors.
  • It Doesn’t Work

    By J_Pruitt
    I’ve attempted to enter in my information multiple times however there is an error message. I am positive all of the information entered is correct yet nothing. I will definitely be deleting the app. I have no use for it. I can’t track anything.
  • Did not provide any information

    By gbyund
    Did not provide any information and was not able to help me further. All in all about as useful as contacting the IRS directly.
  • worm

  • Garbage

    By dk2wire
    Just received my return, app saying information not matching, hard to get social security number, filing status, and return amount wrong. Wonder if I need to put .00 at the end of the return amount. Oh well guess I will never know
