Whether or not you like to entertain, the IRS Revenue Officer was likely not on your guest list. You don’t want to spend time with him or invite him into your Oklahoma home. However, he has requested a visit or, worse, has showed up on your doorstep.
Be Cautious About Uninvited IRS Guests
Even if you want to cooperate with the IRS and end your tax debt issues, you should be cautious about letting anyone representing the IRS into your home without first consulting an experienced Tulsa tax lawyer. You should expect that your IRS guest may:
- Gather evidence during his visit. The Revenue Officer may be looking for something. Otherwise, he would have tried to talk to you over the phone or in another location.
- Create stress, anxiety, or concern for your spouse or children. This may not be the Revenue Officer’s intent. However, the impact of seeing a government official in your home should not be underestimated.
- Provide no benefit to you. There is no benefit to speaking to the Revenue Officer in your home. There are many potential concerns, as described above.
Remember, you may owe the federal government money but you also have legal rights.
