IRS Face-to-Face Saturday Help

The Internal Revenue Service is committed to providing meaningful service and assistance to meet taxpayers’ needs. Many IRS Taxpayer Assistance Centers across the country will open one Saturday each month in February, March, April and May, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., to offer in-person help without an appointment. Normally, TACs are open weekdays by appointment. Please check frequently for new information as availability may change without notice.

Come prepared, bring documents:

  • Current government-issued photo identification,
  • Social Security cards for members of their household, including spouse and dependents (if applicable) and
  • Any IRS letters or notices received and related documents.
  • If you plan to request identity verification services, you must bring two forms of identification and a copy of the tax return filed for the year in question if you filed a return.

During the visit, IRS staff may also request the following information:

  • A current mailing address, and
  • Proof of bank account information that you included on your tax return to receive payments or refunds by Direct Deposit.

Professional foreign language interpretation will be available in many languages through an over-the-phone translation service. For deaf or hard of hearing individuals who need sign language interpreter services, IRS staff will schedule appointments for a later date. Alternatively, these individuals can call TTY/TDD 800-829-4059 to make an appointment.

Tax return preparation options

While tax return preparation is not a service offered at IRS TACs during regular hours or during these Saturday hours, information will be shared on obtaining free tax preparation services locally.
