ORLANDO, Fla. – It’s tax season and the Internal Revenue Service is offering people a chance to get face-to-face tax help on some upcoming Saturdays.
Taxpayer Assistance Centers are opening across the country on one Saturday each month through tax season from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to offer in-person tax help. No appointment is needed.

The TACs are also open during the week by appointment.
The IRS said the centers will be open on the following Saturdays:
- Feb. 11, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- March 11, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- April 8, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- May 13, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The IRS has a TAC in Maitland at 850 Trafalgar Court, near Interstate 4 and Maitland Boulevard.
The other TACs in Florida are located in Miami and Plantation.
“We’re very excited to offer these additional hours to help people get the services they need because we understand some can’t visit us during the week,” Acting IRS Commissioner Doug O’Donnell said. “As always, we encourage everyone to first check IRS.gov for information about these special openings before traveling to an office. They may even find an online resource to resolve their tax concern.”
People seeking help should have their current government-issued photo ID, Social Security cards for their household and any IRS letters, notices or related documents.
The IRS said if you are seeking standard income tax return preparation help, you should contact the following:
- Volunteer Income Tax Assistance or Tax Counseling for the Elderly at 1-800-906-9887
- AARP Tax Aide at 1-888-227-7669
