IRS adds phone option for stimulus checks questions
In response to the frustration by many who have not received their payment, the IRS on May 18th added 3,500 telephone representatives to answer questions. According to the IRS statement regarding phone calls, “Answers for most Economic Impact Payment questions are available on the automated message for people who call the phone number provided in the letter (Notice 1444). Those who need additional assistance at the conclusion of the message will have the option of talking to a telephone representative.”
However, the IRS stated that telephone assistance and other services will remain limited and urged constituents to continue using IRS.gov for information. The phone number for assistance in Notice 1444 is listed as 800-919-9835; another contact number for the IRS is 800-829-1040.
If you haven’t gotten your payment yet you are welcome to contact the administrative office ext. 1 and we can try and help.
Our Resident Service Coordinator Vicky Myers is taking some personal time. We hope that she will be returning sometime in June. Until then please feel free to contact the administrative offices at ext. 1 and we will try to assist you with your needs.
Resident Meetings On Tuesday, June 16th we will be having residents meeting for The Pines @ 11am & for Pinewood Manor @ 2pm. There will be a limit set of 15 residents per meeting so that social distancing will take place. Please watch for sign-up sheets for each property.
