What number can I call the IRS and talk to a real person

I filed my taxes on January 10th; was acknowledged on the 17th.  My DD was moved from 1/25 to now 2/7.  I want to know where is my refund!!  When I look in the IRS website, it is being processed and has been being prossessed for over a week now!  Just getting alittle impatient here.  :/
    Call 18008291040 and press 0 then 0.  Make certain when you get the operator that you have some questions regarding your refund, like the DD (Direct deposit) information. If you say you are checking on the status or the day you should get your refund they will kick you back to the automated line.  So tell them you need to check and make certain your information is correct and they can get you to a real person.
    • Call 18008290582.. Ext 362

    • When I call the 800-829-1040 all I get is a recording not a live person.  :(

    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.
