Income tax assistance

The IRS has announced that 200 of its “taxpayer assistance” centers will be open for special hours from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 15 “to provide help to small business owners and individual taxpayers dealing with notices and payments, return preparation and a variety of other tax issues.” (Hat tip to Tax Policy Blog for announcing this.)

It might be a good idea to arrive early because the IRS’s press release says that “two-thirds” of taxpayers who showed up to their last Open House were assisted. I suppose the other third were either too late or turned away?

Anyhow, the closest IRS location to Decatur will be in downtown Atlanta at 401 W. Peachtree St. NW (ZIP code 30308) at the Peachtree Summit Building. (Other Georgia locations are listed here.)

For parking, it looks like the parking deck at 384 Peachtree Street is your best bet, or just ride to the Civic Center MARTA station.

  1. Thanks for posting! I am constantly looking for tax help because of all the tax problems I've had in the past couple of months. I will definitely check this out next tax season!
