  1. If the appointment line says “due to call volume, we cannot take your call, try again tomorrow” — what do you advise people do? I’ve been calling everyday for 2 weeks and can’t get through. Can I come down to the IRS office without an appointment? I have not received my 2020 refund and have not been able to get a hold of any one from IRS.

    • I don’t believe they will assist you if you walk in without an appointment.

      I would try logging into your online IRS account to see if you can resolve the issue on your own. Alternatively, you can reach out to a local tax professional, or a legal aid clinic if you’re a low income taxpayer. Finally, you can try reaching out to Taxpayer Advocate.
