Got a Problem With the IRS?
The IRS has declared Saturday May 20 as National Problem Solving Day.
Since the IRS' Problem Solving Days began in November 1997, over 63,000 people have been given assistance through appointments, walk-in service or over the telephone. In most cases, they are given assistance and were able to resolve their problem. In the other cases, taxpayers are given advice or information about why they can't be helped further. Many other taxpayers who called to set up an appointment for Problem Solving Days have their problems taken care of over the phone and never need to visit the IRS.

Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
