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.

For the nearest help facility near you, see the IRS website, or call the IRS toll-free line-- 1-800-829-1040.
