IRS Closing Pittsfield Office

Print | Email

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Internal Revenue Service is closing its Pittsfield office, located at 78 Center St., effect Aug. 26.

Area taxpayers seeking face-to-face help and information on federal tax matters can visit the IRS Taxpayer Assistance Center at the Albany, N.Y., IRS office located at 1 Clinton Ave., at the corner of North Pearl. It is approximately 45 miles from the Pittsfield IRS office.

The closure is part of a nationwide cost-cutting measure that will allow the IRS to release more expensive leased space in favor of underutilized vacant space.

“The IRS made a strategic business decision to close the Pittsfield IRS office as a cost savings measure,” said Peggy Riley, IRS spokeswoman for Massachusetts.

IRS continues to pursue strategies for the efficient use of IRS space as well as containment of our increasing rent costs. This closure of the Pittsfield IRS Office, including the Taxpayer Assistance Center, located at 78 Center St., Pittsfield, supports those goals.

Taxpayers can often get the tax information they need or resolve a tax problem without having to call or visit an IRS office.  Instead of calling or visiting an IRS office, taxpayers can often use IRS.gov to get the tax information they need or resolve a tax problem. They should always check IRS.gov for days and hours of service as well as services offered at the location they plan to visit.
