How do I actually talk to someone at the IRS? It has been 11 weeks and I haven't received anything.

I keep getting the automated run around. It's very frustrating.
    You can call the IRS at (800) 829-1040, if you cannot get through to anyone try 800-829-0582 x 362
    • I called on conference with my daughter and was treated rudely, and hung up on.  The 2nd and 3rd calls featuring your suggested numbers failed.

      There are 2 phone numbers I can give you for the IRS.  The one to check on your refund is 1-800-829-4477 and the general number is 1-800-829-1040.  Or if you have a local office you can contact them to check on the status of your return.
        Just add some additional information to SuperUser bluedeb's answer.

        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.

        OR: Try calling the IRS at 1-800-829-0582 x 362 to talk to a live person.

        OR: IRS Refund Hotline (800) 829-1954
