Heck, I’ve called them about 5 times today and only get a recording. I press the buttons it tells me to push and then it hangs up on me. I was trying to look up my tax rebate info online but it said I would have to call the IRS directly. It’s hard to talk to a live person now a days.

    If it is about your rebate try 1-800-829-0582, when asked for an extension, enter 726.

    They are being overwhelmed by people calling with questions about their rebates. You won’t be able to get through until the problem blows over.
