GetHuman: So how would you sum up your experience for GetHuman's IRS customer community? We'll censor any IDs, numbers, or codes and any inappropriate words here out of respect to the millions of other customers using this resource.
~Frustrated Taxpayer: I've tried calling this disaster of an agency five or six different times, and every time, it's "We are currently experiencing high call volumes..." Okay, fine if it's April. But JULY??? I need to talk to a HUMAN BEING, but apparently,that's not possible
GetHuman: Let's quantify your experience contacting IRS. On a scale of 1 to 5, how easy is it go get help on a IRS problem?
~Frustrated Taxpayer: I'd give them a two out of five for ease of finding your way to help.
GetHuman: What about quality of communication. How would you rate that on a 1 to 5 scale?
~Frustrated Taxpayer: I'd give them a five out of five on communication.
GetHuman: And what about IRS's ability to quickly and effectively address your problem?
~Frustrated Taxpayer: For that I would say four out of five.
GetHuman: And finally- any advice for other IRS customers?
~Frustrated Taxpayer: Call them early in the day or late. Don't forget any personal or account information you might need for IRS to know who you are.
GetHuman: Well there you have it. Some useful feedback and words from ~Frustrated Taxpayer taken from his IRS customer service problem that occurred on November 21st, 2017.
