IRS holds second open house for taxpayers

Small businesses and individuals in need of tax help can stop by an open house being held next month by the Internal Revenue Service. 

The IRS will open about 200 offices nationwide, at least one in every state, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 15 to help taxpayers either in person or by phone. Two other open house's are scheduled fro June 5 and 26. 

"Our goal is to resolve issues on the spot so small businesses and individuals can put any issues they have with the IRS behind them," said IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman in a release. 

Shulman encouraged taxpayers to stop by with issues on notices and payment, return preparation, audits and a variety of other issues. 

At an open house March 27, 88 percent of taxpayers resolved their issues, Shulman said.
