Special Saturday Help from IRS Available Without an Appointment on April 9, 2022

As the federal tax filing deadline approaches later this month, the Internal Revenue Service announced that many Taxpayer Assistance Centers (TACs) will be open around the country this Saturday, April 9, 2022 for face-to-face help.

This special Saturday help is available from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and no appointment is needed. Normally, TACs are only open by appointment on weekdays.

“We are inviting anyone who wants or needs some assistance to stop by,” said IRS Wage & Investment Division Commissioner and Taxpayer Experience Officer Ken Corbin. “We designed these extra weekend hours to make it easier for taxpayers to resolve an issue, inquire about their account or work with the IRS if they have an obligation they cannot meet. Whatever the case, face-to-face help will be available on this special day without an appointment.”

People can also ask about reconciling advance Child Tax Credits or Economic Impact Payments or inquire about various other services available while at an IRS office. If assistance from IRS employees specializing in these services is not available, the individual will receive a referral for these services. IRS staff will schedule appointments for a later date for deaf or hard of hearing individuals who need sign language interpreter services. Foreign language interpreters will be available.

Taxpayers can make payments by check or money order. The IRS will not accept cash during these events.

Come prepared with paperwork

The IRS urges individuals to bring the following information:

  • Current government-issued photo identification
  • Social Security cards and/or ITINs for members of their household, including spouse and dependents (if applicable)
  • Any IRS letters or notices received and related tax and financial documents

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

  • A current mailing address, and
  • Bank account information, to receive payments or refunds by Direct Deposit
