The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has announced that it will begin opening its Taxpayer Assistance Centers (TACs) to the public in phases beginning today, Monday, June 29, 2020.

Those taxpayers seeking in-person assistance at a TAC will need to make an appointment. To do so, you. must call 1.844.545.5640.

Appointments will be available if people need assistance for authentication of identity and document validation related to tax return filing or application for an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN); Sailing Clearances required for foreign travel by resident and non-resident aliens leaving the United States; assistance with Economic Impact Payment Issues; and cash payments.

If you have questions that you hope to have answered over the phone, keep in mind that IRS live phone assistance remains limited. For Economic Impact Payment (EIP, or stimulus questions), call 800.919.9835 (that’s an automated number followed by a live person).
