Llame al IRS

As taxpayers, the need to contact the Internal Revenue Service can arise for several reasons. Whether it’s to ask a question about filing taxes, to dispute a discrepancy, or to make a payment, it’s crucial to know how to call the IRS customer service in a professional and timely manner.

Why can’t you reach a real person when you call the IRS? Each year, it is estimated that their customer service receives over 95 million telephone calls on its toll-free lines. Although answers to taxpayers’ questions can be found on the website, they are unwilling or unable to use these resources. They believe if they know the right number to call and know how to talk to someone at the IRS will provide them with more accurate answers than looking online. It’s important to note that the IRS representatives are available Monday through Friday from 7 a.m to 7 p.m local time unless otherwise noted. In the fiscal year 2018, only four out of ten taxpayers trying to reach an IRS live person succeeded. Let’s explore the best ways to contact Uncle Sam and some tips on navigating the process.

Best time to reach the IRS

The main IRS phone number is 800-829-1040, and the available hours are from 7 am to 7 pm local time Monday through Friday. This is also the number you can call to check the status of your refund. For business tax account, you can call 800-829-4333. The best time to call the IRS is early in the morning.
