Jump to: navigation, search

The Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) 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. The service is free and confidential.

Eligibility for using the TAS

  • You may be eligible for TAS help if you have 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.
  • 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.

How to find a Taxpayer Advocate

The IRS Taxpayer Advocacy Service has at least one local taxpayer advocate in every state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico[1] or call 877-777-4778.
