IRS Taxpayer Assistance Centers are your source for personal tax help when you believe your tax issue cannot be handled online or by phone, and you want face-to-face assistance.

If you need to resolve a tax problem, have questions about how the tax law applies to your individ- ual tax return, or you’re more comfortable talking with someone face-to-face, visit your local Tax- payer Assistance Center where you can spread out your records and talk with an IRS representative across the counter. No appointment is necessary – just walk in. If you prefer, you may call a local number to learn about available and alternate services, and to reschedule appointments with IRS personnel. If you have an ongoing, complex tax account problem or a special need, such as a disability, an appointment may be requested. All other issues will be handled without an appoint-t ment Multilingual assistance is available in every office. Hours of operation are subject to change.
