IRS Holds Saturday Open House on March 26 to Help Taxpayers

In their newest press release the IRS announced that almost 100 offices will be open this Saturday to provide free help to taxpayers. If you haven’t filed yet, or received an IRS notice, take advantage of these events!


"We are opening our doors this Saturday to help taxpayers who may not have a chance to seek assistance during the work week," said IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman." We are very focused on providing services to taxpayers when they want it, where they want it."

On Saturday, March 26, the IRS offices will be open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time. IRS staff will be on site to help taxpayers. More than 35,000 taxpayers attended similar events last year resolving more than 95 percent of their issues.

During the open-house hours, IRS personnel will be available to provide services such as tax return preparation, assist with account questions and help with a variety of other issues.

In addition to IRS help, community organizations partner with the IRS. Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) programs assist people who earned $49,000 or less, and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) programs assist individuals age 60 and over with their 2010 income tax return preparation and electronic filing.
