What Is a Taxpayer Advocate

October 4th

tax advocateIn order to assist taxpayers with the very contemplated business of paying taxes, the IRS now offers a Taxpayer Advocate Service. This is an independent organization that is within the structure of the IRS. The job of the Taxpayer Advocate Service is to assist those taxpayers who are currently experiencing economic hardship, those who need help in resolving tax problems that cannot be resolved through normal channels, and those who believe that an IRS system or procedure is not functioning as normal and requires additional assistance.

Getting an Advocate to Help

If you are having trouble figuring out your tax situation, contacting the Taxpayer Advocate Service is a wise decision to make. It is never a good idea to let tax debt problems fester, as this can result in serious trouble coming to knock on your door at a later date. Even better, the service, offered by the IRS, is entirely free. Be sure to take advantage of the Taxpayer Advocate Service if you need some extra help figuring out the IRS system. Notice that the Taxpayer Advocate System is not designed to function as a tax-filing service. It is an assistantship only.

For more information regarding the Taxpayer Advocate Service, and to learn more about how this program can help you restructure your tax life and save you a lot of trouble and headaches in the process, be sure to check out their website at www.IRS.gov/advocate. From there, you can file form 911, which is the Request for Taxpayer Advocate Service Assistance.
