We know that the IRS will stop at nothing to collect money from taxpayers. That said, it is more than a little surprising to realize that they have taken to social media.
As OhMyGov.com explains:
“April 17 was the last day to file your federal tax return, and the Internal Revenue Service has taken to social media to spread the word.
In the past month, the agency everyone loves to hate sent 510 tweets out to remind people to pay their taxes on time, provide tips on how to file and on tax deductions, and to recruit people to work for them and collect your money more efficiently.
On Facebook, close to 1,350 people ‘liked’ the IRS fan page over the past year to receive updates on filing methods and other agency announcements, many of them accountants.
Sending money is often done on the go these days and people are used to checking their balances instantly. Perhaps that’s why over 400,000 people have downloaded the IRS’s phone app for iPhones, Androids and other smart phones, which enables users to check the status of their tax refund right from their mobile phone.
Though the idea of the IRS spending money to take in more of our money leaves a bitter taste, there’s comfort in the fact they are aiming to do it as efficiently as possible.”
For business owners and private citizens across the country, the fact that the IRS has taken to social media is simply another reminder of the size and scope of the agency.
