Talkin' Tax - Working With IRS Revenue Officers
In most cases, tax-related issues can be solved before things escalate. However, when the seriousness of a given case rises, in the eyes of the IRS, they assign a specific Revenue Officer to your situation to collect the tax payment they're owed. On the latest episode of Talkin' Tax, we're diving into the process of working directly with IRS Revenue Officers when they are assigned to cases. We'll not only cover the various situations that would lead to an officer being assigned to a case, but also the different actions they can take to collect the taxes owed. Things are very serious when a Revenue Officer is assigned to your tax-related issue, which is why it helps to have a team of professionals standing in your corner!
