WHAT IS THE ROLE OF A REVENUE OFFICER?
A Revenue Officer of the IRS is employed to collect revenues such as taxes on behalf of the government.
A Revenue Officer of the IRS is employed to collect revenues such as taxes on behalf of the government. There are thousands of IRS Revenue Officers assigned to hundreds of tax cases each day. These specific tax cases may include:
- Delinquent tax returns
- Financial audits
- Tax investigations
- Overdue tax debt
An IRS Revenue Officer is not the same as a revenue agent. The difference between the two is, an IRS revenue agent oversees the auditing of taxpayers. In contrast, an IRS Revenue Officer collects your money.
WHEN WILL YOU GET CONTACTED BY AN IRS REVENUE OFFICER?
IRS tax collection action begins when an IRS Revenue Officer sends an IRS notice or report to you. When you receive this notice or statement, you may be subject to the following:
Revenue Officers can be assigned to a case for a variety of reasons, regardless of how much the taxpayer owes. Revenue Officers can be appointed to investigate any tax cases that seem abnormal. These types of unusual circumstances might include someone who owes more than $100,000 in back taxes. In this case, a Revenue Officer is highly likely to garnish your wages or levy your bank accounts. If you hear from an IRS Revenue Officer, your tax debt situation is grave.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I HEAR FROM AN IRS REVENUE OFFICER?
The IRS won’t assign a Revenue Officer to your case right away. They will usually begin the debt collection process by assigning smaller tax debts to their automated collections system. The IRS’ automated collections system is also called the ACS. The ACS is a call center that contacts individuals and businesses on behalf of the IRS. These calls inform taxpayers that they owe money and that the funds will be collected. The ACS typically takes over smaller debts. Smaller debts are considered to be those less than $100,000.
If the IRS is unsuccessful in collecting your tax debt through the ACS, you’ll be assigned a Revenue Officer. Once a Revenue Officer is on your case, they will try to contact you. They can contact you through the mail, by telephone, or even in person. Also, Revenue Officers have the right to inspect your property. They can also come to your place of business or inquire into any of your financial accounts. The Revenue Officer’s job is to make sure you pay everything you can afford in back taxes. Revenue Officers can be persuasive. Therefore, having a team of tax resolution professionals to help you with Revenue Officer assistance is a good idea.
IS A REVENUE OFFICER THE SAME AS A REVENUE AGENT?
There are a few essential things to know about IRS Revenue Officers. First, a Revenue Officer is not the same as a Revenue Agent. A Revenue Agent is assigned to audit your tax case. The Revenue Officer is appointed to collect money. If you hear from an IRS Revenue Agent, you might be at risk for an audit. In that case, get in touch with the professionals at Platinum Tax Defenders as soon as possible. Tax resolution experts can walk you through the process and help you be aware of your options.
Second, a Revenue Officer cannot arrest you. Any case that warrants the IRS’ criminal investigation division would handle an arrest. In that case, it’s advisable to seek out the help of a tax attorney right away.
When your tax debt case is first under investigation, a Revenue Officer must contact you in person. If your first form of contact is a call from someone claiming to be a Revenue Officer, hang up. The request likely a tax scam. The IRS requires that a Revenue Officer makes the first contact with you in person. Because you meet the Revenue Officer in person first doesn’t mean you will always talk to him or her in person. You might notice signs of attempts to meet with you in person, like a business card left on your door. It’s vital that you do not ignore these contact attempts.
Lastly, it’s essential to know that the government did place limitations on what Revenue Officers can do. These limitations appeared in the IRS Restructuring Act of 1998. The Act made it more difficult for Revenue Officers to seize assets as a form of debt collection.
WHAT CAN A REVENUE OFFICER DO TO ME?
The job of a Revenue Officer is to collect the money you owe. They will attempt to obtain this money whether you hand it to them, or whether they take it from you. Here’s a list of steps and measures that an IRS Revenue Officer can choose to collect your money.
The IRS Can Seize Your Property
If you already have a lien or levy on your property, a Revenue Officer has the right to seize it. It’s important not to ignore letters from agents, especially if you receive them through certified mail. These initial notices are often your best and only chance to prevent the IRS from taking your property.
The IRS Can Freeze Your Assets
IRS Revenue Officers can freeze your liquid assets, such as your savings and checking accounts. Taxpayers are entitled to due process before the IRS takes their assets. If you do not cooperate with your IRS Revenue Officer, they will freeze your account. Working with a professional tax resolution representative can help you immensely through this process.
The IRS Can Garnish Your Wages
If you do not pay taxes owed to the IRS, a Revenue Officer can have your wages garnished. The amount the Revenue Officer garnishes will be determined by what you claim.
An IRS Officer Can Acquire a Search Warrant
IRS Revenue Officers cannot enter your home or place of business without permission. If they ask to come in, and you refuse them entry, they can file court orders against you. By submitting a request with the court, they’ll be able to obtain a search warrant. Once they get a search warrant, you can expect local law enforcement will show up, too. The Revenue Officer will also take whatever items he or she is looking for, like computers and other files.
