When working on your taxes, questions will come up that you don’t feel you are getting clear answers for. The IRS does offer help, and yes, in-person tax help. The IRS Taxpayer Assistance Center (TAC) lets you find and call to schedule an in-person appointment. The people you will be talking to are provided by the IRS when your tax issue cannot be resolved online or by phone.
Of course, exhaust the self-service options on IRS.gov before calling for an appointment. Many questions can be found here without you having to drive to a Tax Assistance Center. Their Publication 5136, of the IRS Services Guide, has additional information about where to receive help.
Keep in mind, the IRS does not initiate contact with you using social media or text message. Contact normally comes in the mail. Be safe and check out this post about IRS scams if you receive anything that looks “fishy”.
