The IRS only has mission critical services available
Like most business around the country, the IRS is only operating mission critical services, such as sending out stimulus checks. However, according to the IRS website, taxpayer assistance centers remain closed - so we cannot meet with the IRS on your behalf. Second, the IRS has informed us through the Kiplinger Tax Letter that Form 2848 - Power of Attorney requests are not being processed at this time. This means only existing filed powers of attorney will be available for pulling transcript histories and speaking with agents on existing or new matters. Because the IRS issues automated letters, our clients may recieve a letter that cannot be responded to with a phone call. So, our Firm is now responding to our client's IRS letters with a written response and we do not know how long resolutions may take.
