Help from the IRS:

If you receive a notice from the IRS involving a same-sex tax issue, it may take time and effort to resolve. Be aware that many letters are generated automatically and that you may easily resolve the issue by calling the IRS or responding with a letter. More complicated matters may require assistance from a tax preparer, and the IRS also offers help selecting one. Read “Tactics for Getting the IRS on the Phone” for additional advice on how to reach the IRS.

The Taxpayer Advocate Service, an independent organization within the IRS, may also help resolve your tax problem. You may reach the Taxpayer Advocate Service at (877) 777-4778. Lastly, you may also contact your U.S. Senator’s office where staff familiar with resolving IRS issues are available.
