You are in a frustrating situation. You may be scared about your financial future and you are certainly irritated by the IRS agent or revenue officer who keeps contacting you. It can be easy to be rude, short, or mean to the IRS agent or revenue officer. However, our Tulsa tax lawyers encourage you to watch what you say—and how you say it.
Fighting with an IRS Agent or Revenue Officer Will Get You Nowhere
If you are disrespectful, argumentative, or otherwise inappropriate with an IRS agent or revenue officer, then you are not doing yourself any favors. You are not standing up for yourself, nor are you making any progress in solving your outstanding tax problems. Instead, you may be doing just the opposite and making the IRS less likely to want to settle with you. Accordingly, it is important to keep your cool and to watch what you say and how you say it to any IRS official.
Better Yet, Don’t Talk Directly with an IRS Official
Instead, let a Tulsa tax attorney talk for you. You can communicate open and honestly with an Oklahoma tax lawyer because your lawyer is working for you. It is your lawyer’s job to zealously advocate for a fair tax settlement on your behalf and you can help that happen by being honest with your attorney. Then, you can let your attorney talk to the IRS on your behalf so that you don’t have to watch what you say or worry about making things worse.
