What is the IRS Number to Dial?
Before calling the IRS, keep in mind that the agency has been struggling to field calls due to the amount of traffic. Trying to get a representative might take a considerable amount of time.
The main IRS phone number is 800-829-1040, but you can also use other phone numbers to get a specific person to help you. You can call the following phone numbers:
|IRS for Individuals||1-800-829-1040|
|IRS for Businesses||1-800-829-4933|
|Collections Department (Bal Due)||1-800-829-7650|
The main IRS line is open from 7 to 7, Monday through Friday, local time. You have to wait an average of 13 minutes in line during the tax filing season – January to April. The average waiting time for the rest of the year goes up to 19 minutes. Note that Mondays and Tuesdays are usually the busiest days, so you will likely struggle to speak to an agent.
