IRS to have community visit in Humboldt

Will offer assistance with tax issues

HUMBOLDT — The Internal Revenue Service will conduct what it calls a community assistance visit Tuesday through Thursday in Humboldt.

IRS staffers will set up a temporary taxpayer assistance center in the Humboldt Community Center, 607 First Ave. S. It will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

To make an appointment to meet with the IRS staffers, call 615-250-5327. However, people can also show up without an appointment.

Taxpayers must bring their current state or other government issued photo identification and all relevant letters or notices they have received from the IRS.

Tax professionals or attorneys can also come to the center with their clients.

During the community assistance visit, taxpayers can meet with IRS employees for:

• Help with letters, notices, and levies on wages or bank accounts

• Changes to tax account information or payments

• Basic tax law assistance

• Payment arrangements

• Authentication of taxpayer identities

• Order transcripts and tax forms

• Get information on IRS resources and tools

Foreign language translation will be available at the center via phone.

Those who would like to speak to an IRS employee in person, but cannot attend the Humboldt event should call 844-545-5640 to make an appointment to visit a taxpayer assistance center.

The Humboldt event is part of an expanding effort to reach underserved communities, according to Christopher Miller,an IRS spokesman.

He said Humboldt was selected because of its distance from a permanent taxpayer assistance center. The nearest one is about 84 miles away.
