You owe back taxes, and an IRS Revenue Officer has been assigned to your case. You are hopeful that you and the IRS Revenue Officer are going to figure a way out of this mess, but how? What can you really expect from the IRS Revenue Officer?
3 Things to Expect and 3 Things Not to Expect from the IRS Revenue Officer
When you talk to the IRS Revenue Officer, you should expect that he or she will:
- Try hard to get money for the outstanding taxes, interest, and penalties that you owe.
- Be courteous and polite to you (though this might not always happen).
- Garnish your wages, seize your property, or put a lien on your house to further tax collection goals.
Additionally, you should expect that the IRS Revenue Officer will NOT:
- Care about your personal situation or finances.
- Care what the tax settlement will cost you or cause you to sacrifice.
- Care why you were late paying your taxes.
For these reasons, it is important to be careful when speaking with an IRS officer or agent.
