IRS Cincinnati (West Chester) office closes, Revenue Officers relocate
Straight from IRS Revenue Officers, it’s official: The IRS has closed its headquarters for its suburban Cincinnati Revenue Officers, effective today, May 15, 2014.
The office was also used as a walk-in taxpayer services office, providing taxpayers with necessary forms, simple tax return preparation, or help with questions. The Revenue Officers are still on the job, and have been relocated to the IRS’s downtown Cincinnati office at 550 Main Street, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202. The other remaining area IRS office is in downtown Dayton at 200 W. Second Street, Dayton, Ohio 45402.
I understand from the Revenue Officers the consolidation was done as a cost-cutting move, using available office space in downtown Cincinnati.
I used the West Chester office not only to meet with Revenue Officers when necessary, but to hand-file multiple years’ tax returns, and, in the past, to expedite levy releases. With the IRS offices now more spread out – the West Chester office was in the middle of the downtown Cincinnati and Dayton offices – it is now a farther drive not only for taxpayers, but for IRS employees. There will always be change in working with the IRS; I will always strive to keep you updated.
