Call in the Pros


Small businesses, payroll companies and tax professionals: The IRS wants to answer your calls.

The Service is sponsoring free monthly phone forums—on the national and local levels—covering topics such as withholding requirements for foreign workers, powers-of-attorney, energy credits and identity theft prevention. The presentation is followed by a question-and-answer session.

There is no registration or participation fee, but slots are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. For a schedule of upcoming national and local phone forums and registration information, visit www.irs.gov and search for “Small Business Tax Workshops and Phone Forums.”
