IRS office visits are now by appointment only
If you need help with your taxes don’t expect to just walk in to an IRS office and get help, plus a CEO caught sweet-talking a member of the Trump administration.
The IRS began accepting electronically filed tax returns on Monday, January 23rd.
Tax payers will have until April 18th to file their returns this year instead of the traditional deadline on April 15th.
The 15th falls on a Saturday but the deadline won’t be shifted to Monday the 17th because that is Emancipation Day, which is celebrated in Washington, DC.
If you need help with your taxes don’t expect to just walk in to an IRS office and get help, all offices visits are by appointment only now.
