IRS Big On ‘Social Media’

IRS wants you to be able to reach them easily, and have access to all of the information resources which they offer – and has therefore added Tumblr to their list of social media platforms.

“Tax issues touch a wide range of people who use information in many different ways.  The IRS Tumblr site provides a new avenue for taxpayers and partner groups to get and share important tax information,” says Terry Lemons, IRS Communications Director.

Folks can already reach IRS on YouTube, and more than 61,000 people follow the IRS Twitter feeds.

IRS warns, however, that these platforms should only be used to share public information, and not to seek answers to personal tax or account questions.  Taxpayers should never post confidential information, such as a social security number, on social media sites.
