Customer Satisfaction Surveys

This page provides a listing of current and recent IRS sponsored customer satisfaction surveys.

The IRS, as for all federal executive departments and agencies and their public websites, must comply with the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) to ensure that information collected from the public, minimizes burden and maximizes public utility.

One of the principal requirements of the PRA is that organizations must have Office of Management and Budget approval before collecting information from the public (such as forms, general questionnaires, surveys, instructions and other types of information collections), and they must display the current OMB control number on the collection format.

IRS surveys conducted by mail, telephone and online provide the name of an IRS contact person and/or a helpline contact phone number. If you question the authenticity of the survey in any collection format, please review this page.
