 • Fort Dodge IRS office to close.

The Internal Revenue Service  on Wednesday announced it is closing the Fort Dodge, Iowa office located at 1728 Central Avenue, Fort Dodge. The office will close on November 30, 2014. The last day taxpayers can receive service will be Monday, November 3. The office closure is part of a nationwide cost cutting effort that allows the IRS to release more expensive, leased space in favor of underutilized vacant space. All impacted employees will be relocated following the closure. IRS spokesperson Christopher Miller said the IRS  continues to look for ways to maximize efficient use of IRS space and contain increasing rent costs. The closing of the Fort Dodge office supports that effort. The IRS reminds taxpayers that they can often get needed tax information or resolve a tax problem without having to call or visit an IRS office. The IRS website, IRS.gov, provides many of the same services available at a Taxpayer Assistance Center including the ability to get  copies of transcripts,check on the status of a refund or get answers to common tax law questions. IRS offices in Des Moines, Waterloo, Cedar Rapids, Sioux City and Davenport will continue to remain open.
