Did you know you can get tax info from the IRS on social media?
When you’re on social media, probably, the last entity you’d ever want to get updates from is the IRS. But these channels can be a really great way to get a question answered. It’s important to note though, the IRS does not answer individual tax questions through social media and they only post public information. And if you love to get instant notification on tax changes like we do, you can do that too. Don’t worry if not, we’ll “follow” the IRS and let you know when you need to know about tax updates. You can always call us with any question you have that’s unique to your tax situation.
