This tax season, the IRS is having special Saturday hours at many Taxpayer Assistance Centers (TACs) nationwide.

No appointments are required. The selected TACs will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the following Saturdays: March 12, April 9, and May 14.

The assistance centers are designed to help taxpayers get the help they need to file returns.  This year, they can be especially helpful to people reconciling advance child tax credit payments or those filing directly for themselves using the IRS Free File:
