“My accountant recommended going through the taxpayers advocate before I pay an attorney big bucks for something that isn't my fault. A week later they called back and said they talked to the agent and that I would have to deal directly with her. So I got an attorney who is supposed to be the best. But now 2 weeks later he still hasn't been able to get a hold of her. Is there anything else I can do??????”-->I guess you mayhave to still wait as your tax attorney is still working on it. As you can see,a source of IRS help comes from the Taxpayer Advocate Service, an independent organization within the IRS charged with assisting taxpayers who are experiencing economic harm, who are seeking help in resolving tax problems that have not been resolved through normal channels, or who believe that an IRS system or procedure is not working as it should. You may be eligible for assistance if you are experiencing economic harm or significant cost (including fees for professional representation);you have experienced a delay of more than 30 days to resolve a tax issue; or you have not received a response or resolution to their problem by the date promised by the IRS.The service is free, confidential, tailored to meet your needs as an individual. There is at least one local taxpayer advocate in each state. You can contact the Taxpayer Advocate Service by calling its toll-free line at 1-877-777-4778 or TTY/TTD 1-800-829-4059 to determine whether they are eligible for assistance.
