(WICHITA, Kan.) — The deadline for filing taxes is just around the corner. The IRS is making things easier for last minute filers with the help of social media.
The agency has made tax information available on social media tools such as YouTube and Facebook. So far this tax season more than one million people have viewed the IRS YouTube video tax tips.
The agency also has a phone app and a Twitter page that thousands are following.
"It can be intimidating if you don't have the information that you need to file an accurate return," IRS taxpayer advocate Traci Wilnerd says. "So my hope is to make this as simple as possible for them to get as much information as they need."
Taxes are due on April 17 this year.
