Congressional Affairs Program
The Congressional Affairs Program is a coordinated effort by the IRS Office of Legislative Affairs and the Taxpayer Advocate Service to establish and maintain relationships with congressional offices.
The program provides District Liaisons who serve as the primary point of contact with assigned congressional offices by:
• Providing information on tax law changes, IRS programs and procedures
• Responding to inquiries on administrative matters
• Organizing meetings and briefings with IRS subject matter experts for congressional staff
• Coordinating IRS participation in workshops and other events, at the request of local congressional staff
The Taxpayer Advocate Service assists congressional staff with taxpayer specific account related issues.
