What is a Revenue Officer?

Revenue Officers are by definition “Collection Officers” for the IRS.

Revenue Officers are assigned to accounts to collect back taxes.

Their objective is to collect the taxes that are owed as quickly as possible and to have the account paid in full. When taxpayers work with Revenue Officers it is very important that they understand their rights. Revenue Officers have the authority to garnish wages, levy bank accounts, to file Federal tax liens and to even seize assets. Although Revenue Officers hold such a position of power they must comply with statues and regulations set forth by Congress. I work closely with Revenue Officers to resolve your back tax liabilities.

How to release a bank levy?

Revenue Officers can be assigned to a case for various reasons, regardless of how much you owe.

However, if you owe more than $100,000 in back taxes, a Revenue Officer will be automatically assigned to your case.

Once an officer is assigned to you, they will make an effort to contact you. This can be done through the mail, through the phone, or even in person. They have the right to inspect your property, meet at your place of business, or to inquire into any of your accounts. The Revenue Officer is just a person doing their job, but their job is to make sure you pay everything you can afford in back taxes, and their methods of persuasion will be felt. Therefore, having a team of professionals between you and the Revenue Officer is normally a good idea to resolve the problem and avoid business interruption.

If you owe back taxes or have unfiled returns, and a Revenue Officer is assigned, ignoring the situation is never the answer. We can help you face the intimidating tactics practiced by IRS Revenue Officers. In working with Revenue Officers, our team has been able to close many cases, providing not only the taxpayer with the relief that they are seeking, but also allowing the revenue officer to have a closed file on their desk and provide the resolve that they too seek.

As former IRS agents, we know how the IRS investigates this type of cases and what arguments they rely on in assessing trust fund recovery penalties.
