Yet, You Will Need More Tips if You’re Dealing With a Difficult IRS Revenue Officer
The revenue officer assigned to your case is expected to be polite; he is expected to be professional. However, that is not always the case. Instead, you might find yourself dealing with a revenue officer with whom it is hard to communicate or treats you poorly. In these situations, it is important to:
- Not fight back.
While you are understandably frustrated and angry, you are not going to make things better for yourself by fighting with a difficult IRS revenue officer.
- Don’t request a new revenue officer.
It is unlikely to happen and may make things even more difficult.
- Remove yourself from the situation.
You can’t just opt out of your tax problems, but you do have the right to contact an Oklahoma tax lawyer to represent you in all tax matters and communicate with the IRS revenue officer on your behalf.
