Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.
The IRS is seriously understaffed. If you are calling the main number(###) ###-####, you can expect very long hold times.
If you tell me your particular issue, I may be able to provide a different hotline number for that issue.
Best regards,
