Believe it or not, the IRS is doing its best to provide tax help to struggling taxpayers.
According to the IRS news room website, IRS will hold hundreds of special Saturday open houses to give struggling taxpayers more opportunity to work directly with IRS employees to resolve tax issues. The offices will be open on March 27 and three additional Saturdays in the spring and early summer. Future dates, times and locations will be announced shortly.
During the expanded Saturday hours, taxpayers will be able to address economic hardship issues they may be facing or get help claiming any of the special tax breaks in last year’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, including the:
* Homebuyer tax credit
* American Opportunity Credit
* Making Work Pay credit
* Expanded Earned Income Tax Credit
In addition to these special Saturdays, taxpayers can take advantage of toll-free telephone assistance and regularly scheduled hours at local Taxpayer Assistance Centers. Taxpayers can find the location, telephone number and business hours of the nearest assistance center by visiting the Contact My Local Office page on IRS.gov.
You need to realize that IRS enforcement is on the rise. For those of you who owe the IRS more than $15,000 in back taxes, penalties, and interest, be prepared to fully disclose your financial information–where you work, how much is in your bank…etc. to the IRS.
While the extra IRS tax help could be good for taxpayers, if you owe $15,000 or more, I strongly advise you to get expert tax help from a tax attorney, CPA, or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist before you speak to the IRS.

And while it may be tempting to pick up the phone and call the IRS to resolve your tax problems, many taxpayers are not aware that it is not a good idea for them to work with the IRS without prior consultation with an expert tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist. This is because any little thing the taxpayers say may be later used against them. Talking with the IRS about your tax problems without being familiar with the tax law is akin to walking on eggshells–you can get in deeper tax trouble without even realizing it.
