The IRS Agent who makes house calls to a taxpayer is called an IRS Revenue Officer or IRS Revenue Agent. This IRS Agent typically shows up to a taxpayer’s home or place of business when the taxpayer is in debt to the IRS for an amount of $25,000 or greater. This IRS Agent will also make a personal visit to a taxpayer’s home or place of business in tax cases where a taxpayer owes the IRS 940 tax or 941 taxes. The IRS Agent who comes to a taxpayer’s home or place of business is not making the personal visit to take a taxpayer satisfaction survey. They want money. Thus, regardless of whether the IRS Agent is an IRS Revenue Agent or an IRS Revenue Officer, the IRS Agent makes house calls with the sole purpose to collect money for the Internal Revenue Service.

When the IRS Agent is an IRS Revenue Officer, the taxpayer should retain IRS Representation in order to deal with the IRS Agent. Likewise, when the IRS Agent is an IRS Revenue Agent, the taxpayer should retain IRS Representation. There is a difference between an IRS Revenue Officer and an IRS Revenue Agent. Neither is good for a taxpayer. However, those differences are outlined below.  Email us at help@triage-tax-relief.com .

IRS Agent who is an IRS Revenue Officer

An IRS Revenue Officer is an IRS Agent who functions as an IRS Collector. The IRS Revenue Officer works extensively in the field, which puts them out on the street making house calls and personal visits to a taxpayer’s place of business. Since the IRS Revenue Officer performs IRS collection duties, the IRS Revenue Officer is skilled in searching for taxpayers assets. They show up at a taxpayer’s home or place of business with the sole intent of collecting money by asking questions and investigating assets of the taxpayer.

A common practice of the Revenue Officer is to go out to a taxpayer’s home or place of business to talk to neighbors hoping to get information that they can use for collecting money. The IRS Revenue Officer functions to investigate and collect. Therefore they have wide discretion regarding who they can talk to about a taxpayer’s issue. The IRS Revenue Officer has a great deal of power to collect taxes. They frequently initiate levies, liens, garnishments and seizures of taxpayer’s assets. A taxpayer who has been assigned to a Revenue Officer should retain IRS Representation immediately so that the IRS Representative can contain the actions of the Revenue Officer and push back the Revenue Officers impulse to collect comey so they can work out an equitable solution to the taxpayers debt and IRS problem. It is important to pay attention to any IRS letters or Summons that are sent by a Revenue Officer. Email us at help@triage-tax-relief.com
