MOUNTAINSIDE — Taxpayers who may have difficulty visiting an IRS Taxpayer Assistance Center during weekday business hours can visit an IRS office on Saturday, March 26 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.
“We are opening our doors on Saturday, March 26, to help taxpayers who may not have a chance to seek assistance during the work week,” said Gregg Semanick, IRS Spokesperson. “If taxpayers need help preparing their tax returns or have an account question, we encourage them to visit one of our open houses.”
IRS offices will be open for Saturday hours on March 26 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the following locations:
- Edison – 100 Dey Place
- Newark – 20 Washington Place
- Paterson – 200 Federal Plaza
- Trenton – One State Street Square, 50 West State Street
- Philadelphia – 600 Arch Street
The IRS will host its final Saturday Open House during the income tax filing season to provide free assistance to taxpayers who need help getting information required to file their tax returns. Help with account questions, such as collection or examination issues, is also available during the Open House.
In addition to IRS help, community organizations partner with the IRS. Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) programs assist people who earned $49,000 or less, and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) programs assist individuals age 60 and over with their 2010 income tax return preparation and electronic filing. Many of these sites have Saturday hours while others offer assistance at various times during the week. Taxpayers can call 800-906-9887 to locate partner sites in their area.
