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.
