Some IRS Taxpayer Assistance Centers Now Require Appointments

March 18, 2015

Visiting an IRS office soon? Check first, because now you may need to make an appointment ahead of time.

The IRS has announced that it will provide appointments at 44 of its walk-in locations across the country. If you’re visiting any of these offices, you’ll need to make an appointment in advance for most services, except making a payment or picking up certain forms.

So before you go, check the Contact Your Local Office page for hours, services offered, and to see if the office in your area requires an appointment.

The IRS offers online options to make a payment and find forms, if you don’t want to visit an office.
