The IRS website provides a wealth of information and assistance:  Be careful – many websites try to look like the IRS website to fool you into buying information and services that the IRS provides free. You may choose to seek paid tax advice but don’t get scammed by a for-profit business which is trying to sell the free services and information provided by the IRS. You can also view free IRS publications on a wide range of tax topics on the IRS website. The IRS provides toll free telephone assistance Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. at 1-800-829-1040.
