THE TRANSATLANTIC MAGAZINE
The Taxpayer Advocate Service, an organization supporting US taxpayers through working with them and the IRS, has launched its new website, which features a new digital tool to help taxpayers and tax professionals navigate many of the complex IRS processes.
The interactive 'Taxpayer Roadmap' allows users to enter the notice ID number on letters from the IRS, which then displays where the letter is located in terms of processes adhered to by the IRS. For example, letters from the various stages of the tax return and payment process will have IDs which correlate to the roadmap, showing taxpayers where they are in the process, and what to expect next.
The redesigned website has also been re-thought in order to help taxpayers with any questions they have or assistance they need. TAS also issues new content updates via e-mail, so if you'd be interested in receiving updates directly in your inbox, go to www.taxpayeradvocate.irs.gov/contact-us/taxpayer-advocate-service-subscription.
