Is there anyway to talk to a live IRS agent?

Every time I call(1-800-829-0582 ext 362 )  I get disconnected. My refund went from "you should expect it by Feb. 7th" to a 6 week message and I am very confused. Just would like to know an answer. I have called the offset hotline and I have no outstanding debts or bills. Help please.
    I do Not know if this is what you are calling the "offset hotline" or Not.  Try the following:
    Call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040.   Do not push for Refund it will send you to the automated check your refund, choose number 2, info about your tax account, listen to all options then select the one that says none of these are my topic, and you will get a live person.

    Hope this helps.
    • Thank you but I have already tried that also. :(

    People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

    1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
    2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
    3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
    4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
    5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
