Request for Taxpayer Advocate Service Assistance, Form 911, is a form that is designed to help resolve an IRS issue. There are three main sections in Form 911. The first section consists of basic information about the taxpayer. The second is the explanation of the problem, and the third is the description of the relief requested.
For instance, you may request the release of property held by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in a levy or a penalty reduction. You may also want to include a list of possible relief actions to help your advocate understand what you are asking for.
The IRS Form 911 can be filled out online, by mail, or by fax. The form can be edited, and the information entered can be accessed in a secure online environment. You can also save the form as a PDF, image, or spreadsheet. You can even store and share the form with colleagues in a secure workspace. You can even set notifications to alert you when your form is ready for review.
The form may be filed by the taxpayer or an authorized representative. A representative is typically a CPA. In some cases, the taxpayer may have a valid power of attorney, but it is not required. The IRS is also able to rescind a taxpayer assistance order, so it is important to remember that it can be a good idea to get an advocate involved before the end of the tax year.
