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 they understand their rights. Revenue Officers have the power to garnish wages, issue bank levies, file tax liens and even seize assets. Although Revenue Officers hold such a position of power, they must comply with statutes and regulations set forth by Congress.
By retaining a tax lawyer from the law office of Herdman & Sakellarides, P.A., a taxpayer gains the service and expertise of a tax professional who will deal directly with the Revenue Officer. Once our firm is retained and is on record as the Power of Attorney, the Revenue Officer must deal directly with our office instead of with the taxpayer. Our objective will be to identify the appropriate means of resolving the taxpayer’s account given all facts, circumstances and law, and to prevent the IRS from taking any inappropriate collection activity.
