Anyone know how to get in touch with the IRS?

Hi - any help appreciated!


Due to the craziness of covid back in March, I forgot to file our corporate return.  We received a late filing penalty notice (which I think is excessive).  I tried calling, but get the "we are too busy, try again" message and then get hung up on. 


This is a first time offense, so I wrote a letter stating why we didn't file on time and request a reduction of the penalty.  Never received a response from this letter.  


Now, we received another notice, this one stating they are going to levy our property.  Still cannot get through to the IRS. 


Any suggestions?  We are a small business losing money and an $800 fine is not needed at this time.
