The National Taxpayer Advocate wants to hear from you.
National Taxpayer Advocate Nina E. Olson and Senator Ben Cardin, will hold a public forum to discuss taxpayer needs and wants in Baltimore, Maryland on Friday, May 13. This is an opportunity for you to speak and voice your needs and preferences in fulfilling your tax obligations with the IRS.
Join the public forum on Friday, May 13, at 10:30 a.m. in Baltimore, Maryland. The May 13 public forum, the sixth in a series to be held in a local community, will feature an invited panel of representatives from the small business and local taxpayer communities, including the following:
Ms. Olson will conduct the hearing in collaboration with Senator Cardin, who represents Maryland in the United States Senate. Senator Cardin's subcommittee is responsible for IRS oversight.
Local Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) staff will be available to talk with attendees about unresolved tax issues and help determine if their situation qualifies for TAS assistance. TAS generally is unable to assist taxpayers with return preparation questions, but can provide assistance to taxpayers who have already filed their returns with the IRS for the current or past years and are experiencing problems that meet its case-acceptance criteria.
The public forum will take place in the Francis King Carey School of Law at the University of Maryland, 500 W. Baltimore Street, Baltimore, MD 21201.
