IRS moving Lake Charles Taxpayer Assistance Center

The following is a Press Release from the Internal Revenue Service:

The Internal Revenue Service announced Wednesday the upcoming relocation of its Taxpayer Assistance Center in Lake Charles.

The IRS office will close its current Rochester location at 921 Moss Street on July 27 at noon and reopen Monday July 30 at noon at its new location at One Lake Shore Drive. The center is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.

"The new taxpayer-friendly location is more accessible with convenient parking," said Dee Harris Stepter, IRS spokesperson.

At the agency's Taxpayer Assistance Centers, taxpayers or tax preparers can meet face-to-face with an IRS tax specialist to discuss their tax situation.

"Just about any question can be answered on or through our toll-free line," said Stepter. "Our Taxpayer Assistance Center provides one-on-one personal tax help for taxpayers who believe their tax issue cannot be handled online or by phone."

For more information on the services provided at our Taxpayer Assistance Center, taxpayers can either go to or call (507) 281-3044 for a recorded message with this information. No appointment is necessary.
