One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help people with federal problems. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a person's behalf to answer questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape.
Below you will find a list of agencies that I can help you with. However, regardless of which agency you need help with, I need a completed privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act.
Please click here for a printable version of the privacy authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.
Which agency do you need help with?
My office is unable to assist in locating a vaccine for constituents who are eligible. This is handled by the New York State government and New York City government. You can search for a vaccine site here or by calling 1-877-VAX-4NYC.
If you need assistance with learning about your tax refund status, my office can currently only assist taxpayers who e-filed. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the IRS is still reviewing the backlog of 2019 returns received by mail. For more information, please click here. For information on Economic Impact Payments, including how to claim the Recovery Rebate Credit on your 2020 tax return if you have not received one or both rounds of payments, please see here.
Please read our Casework FAQ before submitting a request for assistance.
