If an IRS Revenue Officer leaves their card at your door, you need to contact Flat Fee Tax Service immediately because you need to be protected.
For your own good, don’t try to handle an IRS Revenue Officer on your own. If you say something that is untrue, you could be charged with lying to a federal officer.
You need to be polite and non-confrontational. You need to let the IRS Revenue Officer know that you have a Tax Attorney and that your Tax Attorney will call the IRS Revenue Officer back. Even if you do not have an IRS tax representation, you need to do this. Your next step is to immediately hire an experienced IRS Tax Attorney.
IRS Revenue Officers are the most experienced and sophisticated collection employees within the IRS. They work high dollar cases identified by the IRS to be of significance. The focus is given to business cases, employment tax liabilities (940/941 problems), repeat offenders and non-filers.
The Revenue Officer function is localized, with their offices located near your home or business. Most IRS Revenue Officers work from their homes. Revenue Officers are “field agents,” meaning they are expected to get out of the office and get into the field. Revenue Officers will show up at your business unexpectedly and yes they have the gun, the badge, and the handcuffs.
Should your case be assigned to an IRS Revenue Officer, you should expect a visit from an IRS Revenue Officer on a Friday and quite frequently before a holiday weekend. The IRS wants to raise your anxiety level. A visit from an IRS Revenue Officer should get your attention and will have your mind racing. If the visit from the IRS does not gain your immediate attention, then there is something wrong with you.
If you are not in your office or at home, the Revenue Officer will leave their business card/calling card at the door. You will be requested to contact them by a set date. If you fail to voluntarily comply, the Revenue Officer has the power to summons your attendance at an IRS office.
If you ignore the IRS, you can expect the Revenue Officer to start procedures to take your bank accounts, wages, retirement accounts and/or receivables. Revenue Officers can also seize any equity you have in cars, autos and business equipment, but these are usually last resort in severe cases.
If you have received a visit from an IRS Revenue Officer, you should contact an experienced IRS tax professional. If you do not have professional tax representation, you are going to be a distinct disadvantage.
The IRS created a joint task force of Revenue Agents and Tax Auditors from the IRS Examination Division, Revenue Officers from the Collection Division and Special Agents from the Criminal Division to locate non-filers and secure compliance with requirements.
The IRS Revenue Officer wants to do one major thing. The Revenue Officer wants to close your case. That could be having you pay off your tax debt. It could mean having you enter into an Installment Agreement. It could mean that you are declared Currently not Collectible. It could mean that you are submitting an Offer in Compromise.
If you have been assigned to an IRS Revenue Officer, your tax debt is more than $25,000 which means that you will be required to provide the Revenue Officer with a complete financial statement (IRS Form 433-F).
