IRS sponsors Problem Solving Day

Posted online

Local taxpayers are invited to a special Internal Revenue Service Problem Solving Day, noon-6 p.m. and by appointment 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Jan. 13 at the IRS office, 3333 S. National Ave., Ste. 300.

During this open house, taxpayers with long-standing tax problems who have had difficulty getting answers will have the opportunity to meet with IRS employees face-to-face, according to a press release from the IRS.

"We want to reach out to taxpayers who have been unable to resolve their problems.

"Having our employees available to meet with taxpayers for extended hours offers taxpayers a new way to work with us toward a solution," said IRS District Director David B. Palmer, in the release.

Interested taxpayers may call 887-0330 to schedule an appointment for the Problem Solving Day. Taxpayers should bring any relevant documentation or correspondence with them to the session.

The Jan. 13 IRS Problem Solving Day in Springfield is one of a series of sessions being scheduled in cities throughout the Kansas-Missouri District of the IRS.

Since November 1997, the IRS has conducted 14 Problem Solving Days at IRS offices throughout Kansas and Missouri for the benefit of more than 800 taxpayers.

Taxpayers who are unable to come in Jan. 13 can always call the IRS toll-free line, 800-829-1040, 7 a.m.-11 p.m. Monday through Friday. They may request their problem be referred to the taxpayer advocate, the primary champion for taxpayers with problems that cannot be resolved through ordinary channels.
