Are you in tax trouble and planning to visit an IRS office soon? While the IRS can seem intimidating to most taxpayers, if you prepare yourself before your visit, it will seem less confusing and you may be able to accomplish more than you think. Taxpayers visit the IRS’s Tax Assistance Centers (TAC) for multiple reasons; they need to amend a tax return, they are being audited or they may have questions about an IRS notice they received from the IRS.
Before you leave to go to the IRS office, you need to schedule an appointment. You cannot just show up to the local IRS office and receive guidance. You can go to the Contact Your Local Office tool on the IRS’s website to find your closest IRS office. This will also give you what days the office is open and their hours of operation. It will also list the services that a particular office provides. After scheduling an appointment at your local TAC, you will get an email with information about the appointment you scheduled.
If you’re not sure if you need to go to a TAC office, you may look online and see if you can get the help you need that way. Most issues and questions taxpayers have can be resolved online. For instance, if you are looking for your refund, you can use the IRS’s Where’s my Refund tool. There is plenty of help online for taxpayers, and if you aren’t sure if you can do it online, you can contact your local TAC office to see.
