DON’T FORGET THE TAXPAYER ADVOCATE

The Taxpayer Advocate Service is an independent organization within IRS, whose role is to protect taxpayers’ rights and ensure that all taxpayers are treated fairly.

Among other things, the Advocate:

~Helps individuals, businesses and exempt organizations in a myriad of ways

~Helps in cases where the taxpayer’s IRS problem is causing a financial difficulty or, most commonly, in cases where IRS procedure has simply bogged down and the taxpayer is trapped in a morass of red tape with no resolution of the problem in sight.
