Taxpayer Advocate Service

Overview

The Taxpayer Advocate Service is an independent organization within the IRS, led by the National Taxpayer Advocate. The Taxpayer Advocate Service helps individual and business taxpayers resolve problems with the IRS by:

  • Ensuring that taxpayer problems not resolved through normal IRS channels are promptly and impartially handled;
  • Assisting taxpayers who are facing hardships;
  • Identifying issues that impact taxpayer rights, increase taxpayer burden or otherwise create problems for taxpayers, and bringing these issues to the attention of IRS management; and
  • Recommending administrative and legislative changes through the National Taxpayer Advocate‚Äôs Annual Report to Congress.

Each state has at least one Local Taxpayer Advocate, who is independent of the local IRS office and reports directly to the National Taxpayer Advocate.
