Post Seven Things to Know About the Taxpayer Advocate Service

The Taxpayer Advocate Service is an independent organization within the Internal Revenue Service whose employees assist taxpayers who are experiencing economic harm, who are seeking help in resolving problems with the IRS, or who believe that an IRS system or procedure is not working as it should. Here are seven things every taxpayer should know about TAS.
  1. TAS is your voice at the IRS.
  2. TAS service is free, confidential, and tailored to meet your needs.
  3. You may be eligible for TAS help if you’ve tried to resolve your tax problem through normal IRS channels and have gotten nowhere, or you think an IRS procedure just isn’t working as it should.
  4. TAS helps taxpayers whose problems are causing financial difficulty or significant cost, including the cost of professional representation. This includes businesses as well as individuals.
  5. TAS employees know the IRS and how to navigate it. They will listen to your problem, help you understand what needs to be done to resolve it, and stay with you every step of the way until your problem is resolved.
  6. TAS has at least one local taxpayer advocate in each state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. You can call your local advocate, whose number is in your phone book, in Pub. 1546, Taxpayer Advocate Service -- Your Voice at the IRS, and at Taxpayer Advocate Service. You can also call our toll-free number at 1-877-777-4778 or TTY/TDD 1-800-829-4059.
  7. You can learn about your rights and responsibilities as a taxpayer by visiting the TAS online tax toolkit at Tax Toolkit 2010 - Welcome!. You can also check out the TAS YouTube channel at YouTube - TASNTA's Channel.
