Live chat is an excellent way to quickly get a human agent to talk to about your customer service problem and the wait times are usually shorter than they are for phone-based support. But sometimes chatting is inconvenient or not preferred, in which case IRS usually prefer to call their phone number, which we provide a link to above. The department that mans the chat windows at are used to handling Track My Refund, Setup Payment Arrangement, Ask For Tax Help, Missing Refund, Order a Transcript and other customer service issues.

Live chat is rarely available 24/7, and this department is open Mon-Fri 8am-8pm EST.
