Did You Get a Visit from an IRS Revenue Officer?

Tuesday, October 6, 2015
There are times when a revenue officer will personally visit a taxpayer. If an official IRS Revenue Officer shows up to your doorstop or at your business, they are looking to collect money for a past tax liability that is owed to the IRS or to investigate past tax offenses.  The IRS Revenue Officer are tax authorities with expertise in accounting and finance who will make personal visits to perform collection duties and they are extremely specialized in ways to investigate for any assets a taxpayer may have. If an IRS Revenue Officer is coming to visit you, then there are some questions that will need to be answered.  They may probe you until they have answers and a way to collect their money.

Receiving a visit by an IRS Revenue Officer could mean that you owe the Internal Revenue Service a lot of money and they are coming to collect it in full, no questions asked. Typically, if an IRS Revenue Officer shows up, they are collecting sums of at least $25,000, usually more than that, from taxpayers.  

The IRS will stop at nothing to get what is rightfully theirs. They have the authority to legally initiate liens, levies, wage garnishments and confiscation of valuable assets that can reduce or eliminate the tax debt. IRS Revenue Officer’s are also capable of targeting your neighbors to snoop around about your assets or any information that can lead them to get the tax money collected.

It is highly advisable for you, as a taxpayer, to obtain legal representation immediately to deal with the personal visit, phone call or letter from an IRS Revenue Officer. This is not a matter you want to ignore or leave in your own hands. When dealing with an IRS Revenue Officer, it is best to be civil and polite and state that you have or will be getting legal representation for this matter. An experienced and reliable tax attorney can help protect your rights by controlling the ruthlessness of the Revenue Officer and by working with the Revenue Officers in order to come to an agreement that is a viable and equitable solution for both parties. If a taxpayer receives any letter or summons from the IRS, you should contact your tax attorney immediately.
