Having trouble getting an IRS issue resolved?  If so, consider contacting the Taxpayer Advocate Service. According to the IRS:

The Taxpayer Advocate Service is Your Voice at the IRS!

The Taxpayer  Advocate Service (TAS) is an independent organization within the IRS. We help  taxpayers who are experiencing economic harm, such as not being able to provide  necessities like housing, transportation, or food; taxpayers who are seeking  help in resolving problems with the IRS; and those who believe an IRS system or  procedure is not working as it should. Here are ten things every taxpayer should  know about TAS:

1. The Taxpayer  Advocate Service is your voice at the IRS.

2. Our service  is free and tailored to meet your needs.

3. You may be  eligible for our 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.

4. The worst  thing you can do is nothing at all!

5. We help  taxpayers whose problems are causing financial difficulty or significant cost,  including the cost of professional representation. This includes businesses as  well as individuals.

6. If you  qualify for our help, we’ll do everything we can to get your problem resolved.  You will be assigned to one advocate who will be with you at every turn.

7. We have at  least one local taxpayer advocate office in every 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 on our website atwww.irs.gov/advocate. You can also call our toll-free number at  1-877-777-4778.

8. As a  taxpayer, you have rights that the IRS must abide by in its dealings with you.   Our tax toolkit atwww.taxtoolkit.irs.gov can help you understand these rights.

9. TAS also  handles large-scale or systemic problems that affect many taxpayers.  If you  know of one of these broad issues, please report it to us through our Systemic  Advocacy Management System atwww.irs.gov/advocate.
