Lately, the IRS has been trying to provide a “kinder, gentler” image. And the agency really is doing a good job. The IRS Web site is easy to use, including a FAQ and a search function that allows you to download forms and publications. And if you have questions or are confused, you can give the IRS a call.
Yup. You can get a little free tax help and advice with a call to the IRS. Go to the IRS Web site to get contact information for customer service and get some free tax advice. You can also check out this article from Bakrate.com on getting free tax help. AARP also offers free tax help, and many accounting programs at colleges and universities offer free tax advice, or tax help at very low costs.
