    Taxpayer Advocate Service & IRS Focus Groups

    Taxpayer Advocate Service Problem Solving Day

    Stop by the TAS booth to schedule an appointment. 

    The Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) Local Taxpayer Advocate, Jeremy Oswald and his staff will be available to assist practitioners with clients’ tax problems they’ve been unable to resolve with the IRS. Our goal is to provide personalized, step by step guidance and case building ideas specific to your clients’ tax matter. If your clients’ tax problem meets our criteria, we’ll assign a Case Advocate to work directly with you. If your Power of Attorney is not on file with the IRS bring a signed copy with you. 

     

    The Taxpayer Advocate Service is an independent organization within the Internal Revenue Service. TAS helps taxpayers resolve tax problems, recommends changes to prevent future tax problems, and protects taxpayer rights. TAS’s services are free to taxpayers who are: 

     

    • Experiencing a financial hardship or having financial difficulties because of a tax problem; 
    • Trying, but haven’t been able to resolve an IRS tax problem; or 
    • Believing an IRS system or procedure isn’t working. 

    IRS Focus Groups

    Stop by their booth to schedule an appointment. 

     

    Taxpayer civil rights: Are your clients receiving the services they need?

     

    Have you or your clients needed the IRS to provide language translation or interpreter services? Have you had clients with physical or mental disabilities that needed reasonable accommodations when interacting with the IRS? If you answered yes to either of these questions, please consider sharing your experience with us. This focus group will seek to gather information regarding the programs and services offered by the IRS’s Civil Rights Unit within the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.

     

    Online tools and resources for refundable credits: The past, the present, and the future

     

    Share your experience using online tools and resources designed to help with understanding, filing, and reconciling refundable credits (i.e., Earned Income Tax Credit). We want to know your thoughts and opinions about the Child Tax Credit Update Portal used this filing season for the Advanced Child Tax Credit. Was this tool helpful? Was it easy to use? How could it be improved? Help the IRS understand which tools and online resources you currently use, and which ones you would like to see developed.
