IRS Live Chat
IRS customers like to use live chat-based help as an alternative to calling because the wait time is usually short and they may not be able to talk on the phone.
Also, we partner with a US-based firm with experts on staff that you can chat with to troubleshoot your issue for a small fee. Click to chat with a paid expert.
