I will show you how to talk to a real live person at the IRS when you call their toll free 800 # phone number. Getting a live agent is sometimes hard, this page will give you tips and shortcuts to get a live person when you call the IRS office 
To talk to a live person at the IRS is very hard sometimes. Specially when its tax season. When I would call their number, i would always get an automatic respond system (machine robot) that gives you confusing prompts. I would sit through them waiting to see which prompt I would need, waiting for the last one hoping the next prompt is mine.... But to my disappointment, none of the prompts applied to my request..
The question is, how can I talk to an IRS agent directly and bypass all that recording... it was easy, all you had to do is keep pressing the # in your phone and it the system would transfer me to an a live person. They often update or change their answering system so this stopped working.
Fortunately, with all the comments from people like you, they've found a way to bypass the machine. as of April 2014, RKW method is the current way. Look for RKW's comments below.
