All Taxpayer Assistance Centers (TACs) now operate by appointment. When calling to schedule an appointment, customer service representatives are available Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Virtual Assistance provides a safe, secure environment for taxpayers to get service in a face-to-face setting without visiting a traditional TAC. Virtual assistance involves taxpayers interacting with live assistors located in a different geographic location via an IRS computer. This method of face-to-face service is now available at selected IRS partner locations.
Caution: Many of our offices are located in Federal Office Buildings. These buildings may not allow visitors to bring in cell phones with camera capabilities.
Multilingual assistance is available in every office through telephone interpreters. Hours of operation are subject to change.
Before visiting your local office click on "Services Provided" in the chart below to see what services are available. Services are limited and not all services are available at every TAC office and may vary from site to site.
