How Do You Contact the IRS For Help?

How can you contact the IRS? First, you can always go to There is a wealth of information there, if you have the time to go through it and there are the forms and their phone numbers. There are multiple ways that you can contact an IRS agent so that you can try to resolve your own situation, if that's the way you choose to go. You can also go to your local office. Now that may not always be the most efficient way to get help because you may have to wait for a little while but if you want to get eyeball to eyeball with someone you can definitely go to your local office. If you don't know where your local office is you can click on the local office tab on the IRS website and you'll be directed to your nearest local office. You can also seek the assistance of a taxpayer advocate. A taxpayer advocate is a third party entity that reports directly to Congress. They are not directly a part of the IRS but they can act as a liaison between the taxpayer and the IRS in situations that is appropriate. You can reach them by downloading a Form 911 and that Form can be found on the website.
