IRS Office Fairbanks Virtual Assistance – By Appointment Only

The IRS Office Fairbanks provides a virtual assistance feature for the residents of Fairbanks, Alaska. A taxpayer might receive IRS assistance services provided by an employee in a remote office using a computer. The experience is almost similar to talking face to face with an employee, except in this case the IRS employee is sitting in a different location far away and the communication takes place through a computer monitor. Upon confirmed appointment, a workstation will be booked for the taxpayer. The taxpayer simply sits at the designated workstation on their pre-fixed date and time and speak with the employee appearing on screen.

  1. As the new tribal administrator, we are in the process of changing banks. To accomplish this, the bank is requesting our EIN be on a letter head from the IRS. What are the steps for us to acquire this letter please?

    • You can get a EIN Verification Letter (147C) by calling the Business & Specialty Tax Line at 800-829-4933. The hours of operation are 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. local time, Monday through Friday. An assistor will ask you for identifying information and provide the number to you over the telephone, as long as you are a person who is authorized to receive it.
