No camera phones allowed in some IRS centers.
Since many cell phones include a camera function, federal buildings are either collecting the phones at the door in coat-check style or telling people to arrive without their cell phones.
The camera-phone ban does not extend to every IRS office, however, but only to those which are housed in federal buildings. For instance, the IRS center in San Jose is not housed in a federal building, but the centers in San Francisco and Oakland are.
