Dealing with IRS tax collection employees on your own can be scary.
Because of the nature of their job, tax collection employees are often people with strong personalities whose goal is to take money from people who did not pay voluntarily. They are well trained and know how to use the federal tax collection laws to collect the money for the government.
IRS tax collection employees can easily run rough-shot over a taxpayer who does not know or understand his or her rights. However, when they know they are dealing with an attorney (especially one with IRS experience) who knows what they are and are not allowed to do, they are generally more reasonable and will work with you to resolve your tax debt without seizing your property or levying your bank accounts. In the tax collections area of the law, more than others, the ability to negotiate and persuade is almost as important as knowledge of the law. In over 30 years, I have had great success resolving hundreds of difficult tax collection cases favorably for my clients.
