The IRS Taxpayer Advocate Service is an independent organization within the IRS created by Congress and established to protect taxpayer rights and provide help for unresolved tax issues.
Common issues include:
- Inability to pay taxes
- Identity theft
- Choosing a reputable tax preparer
- Needing additional time to file a return
- Correcting a tax return
The Taxpayer Advocate Service has gone to great lengths to address concerns, educate on actual procedures, and give filers a fair say.
