Veterans Who Own Small Businesses Can Follow the IRS on Their Smart Phones
I am a subscriber of IRS publications and recently received the following article which I wanted to share with our readers. The article is directed toward veterans who are small business owners but the following article and the links provided can be used by any small business owner, and by individuals as well. To all the veterans out there – all of us at Bradstreet & Company would like to thank you for your service and hope you had a great Veterans Day.

Veterans who are small business owners likely have lots of questions about their business taxes. National Veterans Small Business Week is as good a time as any other to connect with the IRS over social media.
These business owners can pull out their smart phone or their computer and follow the IRS on these social media sites and apps:
@IRSsmallbiz tweets geared specifically to small business owners
@IRSnews posts tax-related announcements and tips
@IRStaxpros tweets news and guidance for tax professionals
@IRSenEspanol has the latest tax information in Spanish
@IRSTaxSecurity tweets tax scam alerts
Small business taxpayers can get tax tips and helpful news from the IRS on Instagram. The agency’s official Instagram account is IRSNews, which users can access on their smartphone.
The IRS offers video tax tips on its small business playlist. Videos are available in English, Spanish and American Sign Language.
The IRS uses Facebook to post news and information for taxpayers and tax return preparers. The IRS also has a Facebook page in Spanish.
The IRS uses LinkedIn to share agency updates and job opportunities.
The IRS also has their own app, IRS2Go. Taxpayers can use this free mobile app to check their refund status, pay taxes, find free tax help, watch IRS YouTube videos and get IRS Tax Tips by email. Like Instagram, the IRS2Go app is available from the Google Play Store for Android devices or from the Apple App Store for Apple devices. IRS2Go is available in both English and Spanish.
