“I want your experience with the Taxpayer Advocate Service to be a positive one, and I want you to walk away from that experience not only with your problem resolved but also feeling better about the tax system and the IRS – because now you know there is a safety net in the system that can help you when you need it most.” – Nina E. Olson, National Taxpayer Advocate
