IRS Offers Open Houses on Saturday to Help With Lien Withdrawals, Other Taxpayer Issues

The IRS is holding open houses at its Taxpayer Assistance Centers across the country this Saturday, July 16, to assist taxpayers who need help with tax issues. The open houses are especially designed to assist taxpayers who wish to have a lien on their property withdrawn. The IRS in February changed its lien filing and lien withdrawal practices. (See “IRS Announces Changes to Lien Process.”)


In addition to addressing lien issues, IRS personnel at the open houses will also answer taxpayer questions and provide help with other tax issues, and the centers will offer the same services they do during normal operating hours.


The IRS plans to hold the open houses in 74 Taxpayer Assistance Centers in 34 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. They will be open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., local time. A complete list of centers is available on the IRS website.
