quit in disgust?|
The Hoyt Fiasco: Taxpayer Advocate Office
|Here is the contact information for the Taxpayer
Advocate Office, also commonly known by its abbreviation TAO. It used to
be known as the Taxpayer Assistance Office.|
- The TAO is also known as the Taxpayer Apathy Office, due to its
inability to get anything done for a taxpayer; it's as if they don't
care, but the reality is they don't have any power.
- The TAO is also known as the Taxpayer Attack Office, due to its
inability to get things right. When it mis-communicates something to the
IRS, the result is often the unleashing of a sh--storm on the person who
was seeking assistance.
Generally, you should avoid using the TAO. However, if you have a simple
procedural error that needs attention they can be very helpful. Just do not
ask them for help with anything of substance.

When dealing with these people:
- Have your information ready and at hand, before calling.
- Have a short description of what your problem is--something specific
you want them to address. Stick to one item. Do not bring up a second problem;
that can only end badly for you.
- Decide what exactly what you would like them to do.
- Treat them with the utmost courtesy, and be respectful of their
- Keep notes on what they say they will do and when, and what they ask
you to do.
- Write a courteous
follow-up letter to legislators, listing a few key points and
asking them to assist the TAO to resolve this issue. Be sure you
address any limitations the TAO representative tells you about.
Keep in mind:
- None of this is their fault.
- They don't have any real power. They can only "advocate" (suggest a
change) on your behalf.
- They are not your friends. They work for the IRS.
- They are not your attorney. There is no confidentiality; anything you
tell them will likely be reported to the very people who are trying to hurt
- Nobody in the TAO can change the Tax Code. But neither can they force
anyone in the IRS to follow it or even follow any laws of any sort; if your
problem is that someone in the IRS is attacking you and violating the law to
do it, the TAO cannot and will not help you.
