IRS has enhanced its efforts to help taxpayers across the country. Several taxpayers face difficulties in filing tax returns; the IRS offices will assist the taxpayers in filing accurate returns. IRS has opened Taxpayer Assistance Centers (TCAs) throughout the US; these centers are open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Individuals can seek expert advice and can get solutions to their issues.
IRS reports that the offices offer their services without an appointment. TCAs are closed on Saturdays; IRS says that the offices won’t accept cash payments. Taxpayers can seek help regarding the Child Tax Credit.
The offices don’t require appointments
IRS quoted its Commissioner Chuck Rettig; he said, “The IRS continues to do everything we can do to help people during this period. Opening these assistance centers for special Saturday hours are designed to provide yet another way for people to get the help they need. We encourage people to review the details on these special Saturday hours to help serve them. I’m also extremely grateful to our employees who have stepped up to provide this special assistance.” Taxpayers need to keep track of the tax filing dates and submit their tax returns before the deadline.
Taxpayers should have the essential documents
IRS advises taxpayers to come with the identification document. Taxpayers must have government-issued id proof; the officials will provide valuable help after analyzing the data. The taxpayers should have their income records and the list of federal benefits for 2021. IRS issued the letters to inform the taxpayers of the due amount, IRS started to issue tax refunds in February. Millions of taxpayers have filed the tax returns, IRS is likely to delay the payments due to heavy backlog. IRS officials urge taxpayers to file electronic returns to speed up the process.
IRS quoted Wage and Investment Commissioner and Taxpayer Experience Officer Ken Corbin; he said, “We encourage people to receive payments and their tax refunds via direct deposit, which is faster and more secure than other payment methods. People who don’t have a bank account should visit the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation website for details on opening an account online. They can also use the FDIC’s BankFind tool to find an FDIC-insured bank.”
