What is GetHuman's Relationship to IRS?

In short, the two companies are not related. GetHuman builds free tools and shares information amongst customers of companies like IRS. For large companies that includes tools such as our GetHuman Phone, which allows you to call a company but skip the part where you wait on the line listening to their call technology music. We've created these shortcuts and apps to try to help customers like you (and ourselves!) navigate the messy phone menus, hold times, and confusion with customer service, especially with larger companies. And as long as you keep sharing it with your friends and loved ones, we'll keep doing it.

Help from a Live Person

We partner with a US-based company with tech support experts on hand 24/7. If our free suggestions don't work, you can chat with an expert for approximately $25-47 per issue.
