You have a professional image and personal relationships that you value in your workplace. You don’t want your coworkers, boss, clients, or customers to know that you are having trouble with the IRS. It is no one’s business but your own. However, the IRS revenue officer assigned to your case seems to think otherwise and has come to visit you at work.
Know Your Rights
You have the right to stop any meeting with an IRS revenue officer, whether that meeting occurs at your home, your place of business, or somewhere else. Simply (and politely) tell the IRS officer that a tax attorney already represents you or that you would like to be represented by a lawyer.
No matter what the IRS revenue officer tries to tell you next, you have the right to be represented by counsel. The officer may try and tell you that you don’t need a lawyer, that things will be worse for you if you hire a lawyer, or that the officer will have no choice but to issue a summons if you choose to exercise your right to be represented by counsel. Don’t let these things scare you. Instead, remember that the IRS agent has a job to do, and that job is to get as much money from you as quickly as possible. A lawyer could make that harder for the agent or officer.
