The three most common issues in Taxpayer Advocate Service's (TAS) case inventory for fiscal year 2009 were processing amended tax returns, levies, and identity theft. Do any of these apply to you? TAS is an independent organization within the IRS whose employees assist taxpayers who are experiencing economic harm, need help resolving tax problems that have not been resolved through normal channels, or believe an IRS system or procedure isn't working as it should. Whether you are an individual, small, medium, or large business, or a tax-exempt organization, TAS is your voice at the IRS. Their service is free and confidential, and they stick with you from beginning to end. TAS employees know and understand the IRS, which means faster navigation to a solution for your problem. TAS has at least one local taxpayer advocate in every state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. You can find your local advocate's number in the phonebook, in Publication 1546, and on TAS's website under Contact Your Advocate. You can also call the toll-free case intake line at 877-777-4778.
