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 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. At Polston Tax, we can offer you tax resolution services and representation, and we can communicate with the IRS on your behalf.
Tips to Keep in Mind When Visiting the IRS Office
Before you leave to go to the IRS office, you need to schedule an appointment. You cannot just show up at 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 tool will also give you what days the office is open and its hours of operation. You’ll also find a list of 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.
How to Determine When You Need to Go to the IRS Office
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, but if you aren’t sure whether you can obtain a resolution online, you can contact your local TAC office to see. You can also speak with a tax attorney at Polston Tax about our tax resolution services and how we can help you deal with the IRS. Our professional tax resolution services include:
- Bank levies
- Lien assistance
- Penalty abatement
- Offer in compromise
- Audit representation
- Innocent spouse relief
- Installment agreements
- Payroll tax representation
- IRS account investigation
- Revenue officer assistance
- Currently Not Collectible status
No matter what issue you need to resolve with the IRS, we can offer you the assistance you need and help you reach a resolution with the IRS that works for you.
