Some important items to remember when you receive a letter or telephone call from the IRS:
- Respond timely and early.
- Give the appearance of cooperation.
- Do NOT allow anyone from the IRS to complete forms for you either over the telephone or in person.
- DO get advice on how to deal best with the IRS.
You do have options when dealing with the IRS. The sooner you act, the more options you will have. If you put off coming in for advice, you may be limiting your options to the lesser of two evils. It is best to react quickly and develop an offensive plan rather than react under pressure and on the defensive. It is usually difficult for a taxpayer to deal with the IRS. This is not your job, but it is the job of the people working for the IRS. They do it everyday. They are strong and do not bend easily. They have been known to intimidate and threaten. Under their power, you may loose your ability to negotiate effectively. This is where we can help. We have a working knowledge of the IRS. We know what they can and can’t do. We know what you can and can’t do.
If you are having problems with the IRS, give us a call. We speak the language of the IRS and can help your frustration go away.
