How You Should Talk to the IRS -- How to Communicate with the IRS


Whether the Internal Revenue Service is auditing you or you're trying to work out a payment plan on a tax bill, meeting an agent face-to-face can lead taxpayers to make serious missteps, experts say.
Here are seven ways to avoid common mistakes:
Rule 1: Don't ignore the taxman (IRS). The IRS has an automated collections system (ACS) which will match up data such as your tax liability, current employer or bank account information. The IRS will start issuing notices. Each notice gets a little more harsh. Eventually, the IRS will take collection action against you and place a levy on your wages or bank account.
Rule 2: Communication with the IRS needs to start, but that doesn't mean that you start telling the IRS everything. The IRS are collection professionals. The IRS has "heard it all." Taxpayers often get defensive and chatty. Taxpayers will often say the wrong thing and agree to an outrageous Installment Agreement that they can't possibly keep up. Your experience tax representative should be communicating with the IRS for you.


Rule 3: Treat the IRS agent with respect and maintain emotional control. You want the IRS Revenue Officer to be on your side as much as you possible.
Rule 4: Don't arrive ready to write a check. And don't respond to an IRS letter by dropping a check in the mail. The IRS may be wrong. But once you agree on a payment plan, no matter how bad it is, the IRS will expect that you stick to it.
Rule 5: Bring your documentation. Receipts, canceled checks and other documentation will give you more leverage in being able to negotiate. If you have a new business and have changed your filing status, you may need items such as your mileage log.
Rule 6: Ask questions. "When you talk with the IRS, they will lay out for you every single thing that you can do. The IRS will not explain how to do anything, but they will tell what you could do. 
Rule 7: Don't go it alone. It's no surprise that Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. recommends that you hire an experienced tax professional for a face-to-face audit. 

If you owe the IRS a back tax debt, you have the following choices:

  1. Do nothing and wait for the IRS to start seizing assets and garnishing wages, paychecks, Social Security or Social Security Disability benefits. 
  2. Wait for the IRS to file Liens against you.
  3. Pay your tax liability in full.
  4. Enter into an Installment Agreement. The IRS will continue to add penalties and interest at the rate of approximately 47% per year. Before you agree to any Installment Agreement, you need to look at reducing your tax liability through a Penalty Abatement or via a tax settlement through the Offer in Compromise program.
  5. If you have a "reasonable cause" as to why you ended up with your IRS problem, you need to submit a Penalty Abatement.
  6. If you are struggling financially, you need to look at a settlement with the IRS through the expanded IRS Fresh Start Offer in Compromise program. You can pay your settlement in small monthly installments.
  7. If you are struggling financially, you may be declared "Currently not Collectible." This means that the IRS will stop collection activity against you. Being declared "Currently not Collectible" continue unless your financial situation improves substantially. Periodically you will be expected to provide the IRS with your financial information.

  1. If you have a tax liability that is owed to the IRS, it is better to have professional IRS representation. The IRS are professional collectors who have "heard it all." Don't say something that will harm you. You need to "LAWYER UP."
