GetHuman-434762'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.
GetHuman-434762: PRESS ONE FOR ENGLISH! Really? In America?That is insulting. **(Said **-** min. Was ** min.) *BUT:I followed all the prompts exactly, and then had to enter other information, but it got me to a real live human being. Very pleasant young (well, I'm old, so everybody else is young) lady who spoke English ala Americana. She was efficient and helpful.
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?
GetHuman-434762: I'd give them a one 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?
GetHuman-434762: I'd give them a four out of five on communication.
GetHuman: And what about IRS's ability to quickly and effectively address your problem?
GetHuman-434762: For that I would say one out of five.
GetHuman: And finally- any advice for other IRS customers?
GetHuman-434762: 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 GetHuman-434762 taken from his IRS customer service problem that occurred on November 24th, 2017.
