The Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) routinely helps address taxpayer issues. But in a recent memorandum, it announced it won’t accept cases that are solely related to Economic Impact Payments (EIPs). EIPs are amounts paid to eligible taxpayers to help them deal with the effects of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Many taxpayers who haven’t received their payments have reached out to the TAS for help, but the TAS doesn’t have mechanisms in place to expedite or improve EIP processing. However, the TAS can help taxpayers deal with issues, such as identity theft and filing of duplicate tax returns, which may stop or delay a taxpayer’s original refund and the EIP.  Call or visit our website for more information!
