SEATTLE-The Internal Revenue Service today announced steps to expand customer service for taxpayers. Through the agency's Everyday Tax Solutions service, a taxpayer or tax preparer now can call a local number to set up a personal appointment at the most convenient Taxpayer Assistance Center, on the most convenient business day.

There are 10 phone numbers in Washington State that are dedicated to scheduling face-to-face meetings to help solve tax problems. All other calls should be directed to the regular IRS help number: (800) 829-1040. There are 400 new, local numbers across the nation dedicated to scheduling face-to-face meetings to help solve tax problems.

IRS Taxpayer Assistance Center telephone numbers are listed through local directory assistance and on the IRS website at www.irs.gov under the "individuals" section.
