Do You Really Want to Talk to the Revenue Officer?
Quick answer: No, you don’t.
You need an attorney to handle this conversation for you. Here’s why.
If you have back tax debt, the IRS will assign you a “caseworker” called a Revenue Officer. Usually this is a last resort, if you owe a large amount of money and the IRS has tried unsuccessfully to contact you through other channels, like notices, liens and levies.
Once the Revenue Officer shows up, things start to get really bad, really fast.
The officer is smart and specially trained (a cut above your average collections officer). He or she has one job: to make you pay. The officer has absolute collections authority, which means they are allowed to do things that normal IRS personnel don’t do.
Here’s what the Revenue Officer can do.
- Send you notices
- Call you on the phone
- Visit you at home
- Visit you at work
- Contact your clients
- Get information on your family members
- Levy your bank account and wages
- Issue summons (call you to mandatory meetings at IRS offices)
- Seize accounts receivable
- Seize valuable property
The list goes on. This is not somebody you want to deal with yourself. If you receive a call or a visit from the Revenue Officer, call a tax attorney (like us) right away. We will help you review your situation, get your paperwork together, and then we will call the officer back for you to make sure you don’t get strong-armed into payments you can’t afford.
We can help you “level the playing field!” Our lawyers can get between you and the Revenue Officer. We can coach you through the process – no hype, no lies – just good advice with a plan of action to end the worry!
