IRS hotline for calling from outside of the US, with record fast answering time

For US citizens who need to speak to the IRS and are residing outside of the united states... they have a phone line and the wait time is really short, record short in comparison to the regular hotline and many customer service lines in Europe)... The customer service representatives are very nice and helpful as well!

Tips for calling: 

Prior to your call: Make sure to remember your social security number because they will ask for it to verify who you are as well as birthdate, and address. 

I would advise calling from the comfort of your own home or at least preferably not in a public place as this is a confidential manner and you need to tell them your social security number and don't want anyone to overhear. 

I called multiple times via google voice and it works perfectly (over VOIP). If you have a phone plan that allows for calling the US you can use that as well... 

Best not to use the phone on speaker but rather with a headset or call the old fashioned way (phone next to your ear).


They do not work on Sundays nor government holidays. The hotline is officially open from  6 a.m. to 11 p.m. (Eastern Time, U.S. and Canada), I usually call after 9 a.m. eastern time and have always been connected with a representative within several minutes of calling.

This is the number to call +1‪ (267) 941-1000 (not toll free)‬ from


First hit 1 to get the english menu (if you speak english), then hit 4 (for calling from out of the US) to get help! and then proceed as normal.
