IRS To Close 68 Taxpayer Assistance Centers

Irs_logo_95In typical government fashion, the IRS announced this afternoon (the Friday before the Memorial Day weekend) that it is closing 68 of 400 Taxpayer Assistance Centers (TACs) that provide walk-in service for taxpayers. The decision of which cneters to close was based on a consideration of five criteria (explained in detail here): workload, geography, demographics, employee costs, and facility costs.

Out of 2,300 employees who operate the TACs nationwide, fewer than 450 employees are located in the affected centers. These employees may be offered early retirements and buyouts. Most employees should be entitled to priority placement for other jobs within the IRS and other Treasury bureaus.
