You can help the Taxpayer Advocate Service tackle the “big-picture” problems in the IRS or the tax law by reporting them to us. These systemic issues:
- Always affect multiple taxpayers;
- Don’t apply to just one taxpayer (but if you personally have an unresolved IRS problem, TAS may be able to help);
- Involve IRS systems, policies, and procedures;
- Involve protecting taxpayer rights, reducing burden, ensuring fair treatment, or providing essential taxpayer services.
Read our FAQs for additional information on submitting systemic issues.
