One of the many things that most people don’t know about the IRS.
Taxpayer Advocate Service is an organization that that helps tax payers get help paying their back taxes, settle issues with the IRS and helps them get help with there is a financial hardship regarding those taxes.
From the site:
“Our mission in the Taxpayer Advocate Service reaches beyond individual cases and extends into the realm of Systemic Advocacy. The role of Systemic Advocacy is evident in the TAS mission statement: “As an independent organization within the IRS, we help taxpayers resolve problems within the IRS and recommend changes that will prevent the problems.” This means we try to repair systemic flaws in the IRS and the tax code, which can cause trouble for taxpayers and IRS employees alike.”
Interesting, isn’t it?
