IRS “Solution Saturday” on Nov. 7 Offers Tax Help in Tough Times

The Internal Revenue Service at 300 N. Los Angeles St. in downtown L.A. is offering taxpayers a special “Solution Saturday” on November 7, from 9am to 2pm.

Beginning Monday, October 26, taxpayers needing personalized help with difficult issues may call 213-576-4130 from 8:30 am to 4 pm to schedule an appointment for Solution Saturday. Appointments are recommended, but those without one can also walk-in for assistance on November 7.


Foreclosure, bankruptcy, payment plans, penalties, past-due tax returns and other complex tax issues can be a challenge for taxpayers. Many of these issues require contact with specific IRS departments and tax experts. Solution Saturday brings together IRS employees from across the agency to work face-to-face with taxpayers to address unique tax problems or issues.

In addition to the scheduled appointments, Solution Saturday will offer information booths staffed by IRS employees who’ll explain getting the most out of the new tax credits created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, starting a new business, and navigating IRS programs designed to help taxpayers. “People can get help from the IRS website at, and they can call us at 1-800-TAX-1040,” says Rick Byrd, IRS Wage and Investment Commissioner. “Our goal with Solution Saturday is to offer people dealing with difficult financial situations another way to get help from the IRS.”

IRS Solution Saturday is also being offered on Nov. 7 in Atlanta, Dallas, Detroit, and Philadelphia.
