The Internal Revenue Service’s Taxpayer Assistance Center in Baton Rouge will be open 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday to answer taxpayer questions and provide help with tax-filing issues.

The office is at 2600 Citiplace Centre.

The special event is intended for people who want to make a “fresh start” by taking steps to have liens withdrawn. It also provides an opportunity to those who cannot visit an IRS walk-in office during regular weekday hours to speak with IRS personnel about their tax issues.

“We’ve made changes to our collection processes and federal tax lien system to help taxpayers who may be facing tough times and federal tax problems get a ‘fresh start’ with the IRS,” said Dee Harris Stepter, IRS spokesman for Louisiana.

Service will be provided on a first come, first served basis.

A total of 74 Taxpayer Assistance Centers will be open in 34 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico.

At the last two open houses, IRS personnel helped more than 16,000 taxpayers.
