What does taxpayer advocate service do and how do they help?

The Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) is an independent organization within the IRS whose function is to assist taxpayers with problems that are causing financial difficulty. This includes businesses and individuals. You may be eligible for our help if you’ve tried to resolve your tax problem through normal IRS channels and have gotten nowhere, or you believe an IRS procedure just isn’t working as it should. If you qualify for help, you’ll be appointed a personal TAS advocate who will coordinate with the IRS to have your issues resolved.

How do I contact TAS?

There is at least 1 local TAS office in each state. You can either call 1-877-777-4778 or click on one of the states below to locate the office nearest to you.
