Taxpayer Advocate Services are generally available to individuals who have been unable to resolve an ongoing issue with the IRS through normal channels, or who have suffered or are about to suffer a hardship as the result of an unresolved problem with the IRS. Some of the types of things the Taxpayer Advocate Service might help with include ironing out problems with your tax return or resolving conflicts in advice you received under the IRS tax help program or other IRS tax programs. Taxpayer Advocate Services are delivered locally at taxpayer assistance centers in each state. To find one near you, visit the IRS Web site and search on the term “Taxpayer Advocate Service” or call IRS customer service at 1-800-829-3676.
