~anotherdisgruntledperson's review of IRS customer service
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.
~anotherdisgruntledperson: Kept telling me they have had severe budget cuts and would not tell me how to get duplicate w*'s or how far back I can go to file. They spent more time defending their lack of service then asked me for my grown son's social and said if I don't have it they can not verify me, and I'd have to go to a physical office with ID. They spent plenty of time giving clear prompt instructions to get me off the phone.
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?
~anotherdisgruntledperson: I'd give them a four 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?
~anotherdisgruntledperson: I'd give them a three out of five on communication.
GetHuman: And what about IRS's ability to quickly and effectively address your problem?
~anotherdisgruntledperson: For that I would say one out of five.
GetHuman: And finally- any advice for other IRS customers?
~anotherdisgruntledperson: 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 ~anotherdisgruntledperson taken from his IRS customer service problem that occurred on November 23rd, 2017.
