IRS Live Chat
IRS customers like to use live chat-based help as an alternative to calling because the wait time is usually short and they may not be able to talk on the phone.

Does GetHuman work with IRS?

GetHuman does not work with IRS's customer support operations, directly or in any other way. GetHuman has no partnership or relation to IRS at all. GetHuman works with customers everywhere to compile the best tips and tools for reaching call centers faster and solving common customer problems effectively. Much of the information on this website comes from customers who struggled to find the best contact information or solve a problem and shared their story. The information on this website is edited frequently, but for the most accurate and up to date contact information, it may be useful to check IRS's own website for new or more up to date information about calling or messaging their call center. If you'd like to help in the effort to improve customer service for all, please share this page!
