If you are having difficulty with the Internal Revenue Service, my office may be able to help. 

The IRS’s Taxpayer Advocate Service assists in recovering missing tax refunds, expediting the release of levies, evaluating taxpayers for Currently Not Collectible status, and more. Please note that the IRS warns taxpayers with seriously delinquent debt that they may be at risk of having their passport revoked.

Before I can make an inquiry with the Taxpayer Advocate Service on your behalf, the Privacy Act of 1974 requires that you give me your written authorization. To do so, please complete this Privacy Release Form.

While my office can help you in a number of ways, Senate ethics rules prohibit me from providing legal or tax advice on your behalf.
