Taxpayer Advocate Service – Your Voice at the IRS

The Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) is your voice at the IRS. Our job is to ensure that you’re treated fairly and that you know and understand your rights. We can offer you free help with IRS problems that you can’t resolve on your own.

If you qualify for our help, you’ll be assigned to one advocate who’ll be with you at every turn and do everything possible to resolve your problem. We have offices in every state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, and our services are always free.

In June 2014, the IRS adopted a Taxpayer Bill of Rights that describes ten fundamental rights that you and every taxpayer have when dealing with the IRS. In December 2015, Congress added the Taxpayer Bill of Rights to the Internal Revenue Code. See IRC § 7803(a)(3). Our online Tax Toolkit at TaxpayerAdvocate.irs.gov can help you understand what these rights are, what the Taxpayer Bill of Rights means for you, and how these rights apply in specific situations with the IRS.

If you need TAS’s help, call your local advocate; see Contact Your Local Taxpayer Advocate or call us toll-free at 877-777-4778.
