GetHuman5905362's customer service issue with IRS from March 2021

Help with my IRS issue
The issue in GetHuman5905362's own words
How can you get in touch with the IRS to report a technical issue with their website? I'm trying to find out the status of my stimulus payment, but every time I use their website and plug in my details, it gives me back an 'access denied' error and a string of hexadecimal. I cannot find any way to report this error in the hope they could get it sorted out. **Oh, OK, you really want to know? :) (cut and pasted)**Access Denied*You don't have permission to access "http:**sa.www**irfof-wmsp*login" on this server.**Reference ***.a*******.**********.d***b*d

How GetHuman5905362 fixed the problem
I didn't succeed in contacting the UPS. They just weren't answering the phone, end of story. **You have to enter your address on the IRS website *EXACTLY* as it is in the USPS's zip code database, apart from the comparison appears to be case-INsensitive. That cryptic error message I got was simply due to the fact that I wrote my address without abbreviating "Road" to "Rd". Just that one simple change, and everything worked as it should. My vote for "cryptic error message of the year!" :(
