IRS Announces May 16 Problem Solving Day
WASHINGTON - The Internal
Revenue Service will hold another Problem Solving Day on May 16 at 44 locations
nationwide. Problem Solving Day will provide taxpayers who have long-standing tax problems
the opportunity to work face-to-face with IRS employees to find solutions.
With National Small Business Week scheduled for May 31 to June
6, the IRS will make a special effort to help small businesses with tax problems. Each of
the 44 IRS locations will provide free small business tax publications and will lend
educational videos on a first-come, first-served basis. A schedule of free IRS small
business workshops and information about the Small Business Taxpayer Education Program
(STEP) will also be available.
To find the nearest location, taxpayers may call the IRS
toll-free help line at 1- 800-829-1040 or access the IRS's Web site at www.irs.ustreas.gov.

about 25,000 taxpayers have been helped either in person or by telephone. In most cases,

other cases, taxpayers were given either advice or information about why they could not be
Taxpayers do not have to wait until Problem Solving Day to
resolve their tax problems. They can call the IRS toll-free line at 1- 800-829-1040
anytime and ask that their problem be referred to the Taxpayer Advocate. The Taxpayer
Advocate is the primary champion for taxpayers who have problems that cannot be resolved
through ordinary channels.
