It's official. Everyone is now on Twitter, even the IRS. By following @InternalRevenue you can keep up with tax updates and IRS announcements. Unfortunately, the IRS won't be tweeting to network with taxpayers, and you'll still have to wait on hold during tax time. They'd have to hire a slew of employees just to answer all of the inquiries received via Twitter — we need more jobs in this country anyway, right?
I don't see the IRS expanding its use of Twitter beyond posting announcements anytime soon, but at least you can stay on top of taxing changes. Speaking of Twitter, are you following yours truly yet?
