While the law does not explicitly state that a taxpayer must be nice to an IRS agent, human nature suggests that being nice, or better yet having someone else communicate on your behalf, is in your best interest.
Think about the last time that you had to negotiate something at home or at work. What you were taught as a child really mattered, didn’t it? When the person with whom you were negotiating was polite and respectful, you likely felt much more willing to negotiate.
Now, we know that some IRS agents and revenue officers can be frustrating and that it can be difficult to maintain a good attitude. At the same time, we know how important it is to be respectful and polite. Accordingly, our Norman tax attorneys recommend that you help your Oklahoma tax case by taking yourself out of it. Instead of negotiating directly with the IRS, you have the right to hire an experienced Norman tax lawyer to do it for you. You have the right to end all direct communication with the IRS and to let your Norman tax attorney take care of all communications on your behalf.
