    Average hold time to get a hold of IRS?

    What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Texas.

    It seems like there is always a long hold time to speak to an IRS agent for the Federal tax return.

    What have been your average hold times? What time and day is the best time to call?

    Are they helpful?

    It's usually not too bad, never more than ten minutes or so. Avoid Monday morning.

    My experience is about the same as Ron's.

    And I've always found the IRS much more helpful than most other agencies I've had to call.

    Depends on which department I'm calling. Practitioners with a power of attorney have a line with a much faster response time with a higher level of service rep on the phone.
