Tax problems? May 15 IRS open house may help

The Internal Revenue Service will host a special nationwide open house on Saturday, May 15, to help small businesses and individuals solve tax problems. The Jacksonville office at 400 West Bay St. Jacksonville will be one of about 200 IRS offices open from 9 a.m. top 2 p.m. with IRS staff available on site or by telephone to help taxpayers work through their problems and work out solutions.

IRS locations will be equipped to handle issues involving notices and payments, return preparation, audits and a variety of other issues. At a previous IRS Open House on March 27, approximately two-thirds of taxpayers requested and received assistance with payments and notices.

At the March 27 Open House, 88 percent of the taxpayers who came in for help had their issues resolved the same day.

The Open House on May 15 is the first of three events scheduled through the end of June. The next two are planned for Saturday June 5 and Saturday June 26. Details regarding those events will be available soon.
