The phone number *must* be a 10-digit U.S. phone number. If you don't have one, just leave it blank - not even a space in that box.

Haha. How ridiculous!

 

Thanks for the help, Carl. I will indeed leave it blank.

I don't know why the IRS even asks for a phone number. The IRS will never ever ever ever call you under any circumstances and with no exceptions.
