IRS Office Seattle – 915 Second Avenue, Seattle, WA 98174
The Seattle IRS Office is located in Henry M. Jackson federal building at the center of downtown Seattle. Despite being located in a very busy area, this federal building stands out with its aesthetics and gracefulness. It is a 37-story high rise building within the Pioneer Square Commercial Business District. This monolithic building has a square footprint, yet the clipped corners make it look less angular on the skyline. Burke Building on the same locations was demolished 1971 and construction of this building was completed in 1974. US Social Security is one of the major Federal tenants on this property other than IRS.
