IRS Offering Help on Saturday

The IRS will be "open" for businesses and individuals to receive help with their tax questions and problems.  The Jackson office is taking part in a nationwide Open House on Saturday May 15.  Service will be available from 9 am to 2 PM.  IRS staff will be available on site or by telephone to help taxpayers work through their problems and walk out with solutions.

"Our goal is to resolve issues on the spot so small businesses and individuals can put any issues they have with the IRS behind them," IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman said. "If you have a problem filing or paying your taxes or resolving a tough tax issue, we encourage you to come in and work with us."

IRS locations will be equipped to handle issues involving notices and payments, return preparation, audits and a variety of other issues. If you are facing financial difficulties or have questions regarding an IRS notice, come in for assistance. Assistance with offers-in-compromise will also be available. Likewise, a taxpayer struggling to complete a certain IRS form or schedule can work directly with IRS staff to get the job done.

At the March 27 Open House, 88 percent of the taxpayers who came in for help had their issues resolved the same day.

The Jackson IRS office is located at 100 West Capital Street.
