How to Protect Yourself from Aggressive IRS Actions

In order to avoid aggressive IRS actions, it is important to understand how they work. In addition to sending notices regarding the payment of debt, the IRS also uses various aggressive collection actions such as a federal tax lien and tax levy to collect unpaid tax debt.  Don’t avoid the IRS’ attempts to collect your unpaid tax debt.  Contact RMS Tax Consulting at (520) 448-3531 and speak with Enrolled Agent Richard Schickel for a free consultation.

Early Resolution Efforts

It’s beneficial for you to begin resolution efforts as soon as possible. Once you discover that you owe back taxes, you should gain an understanding of your case and seek expert help, if necessary, to begin the resolution process. Apart from avoiding aggressive IRS actions, early resolution also helps to limit the penalties and interest that will need to be paid on your debt.

The IRS does not send a single letter, but multiple notices to collect tax debt. If you do not respond to the notices or make a satisfactory effort to resolve the unpaid debt, the IRS may issue a tax lien or begin aggressive collection actions such as a wage garnishment or bank levy.

Issues such as procrastination, postponement, and avoidance can cause you to remain non-compliant even after the IRS begins collection efforts. In order to avoid facing aggressive IRS actions, it’s important to respond to notices and explore resolution efforts.

Payment Plans

The IRS has payment plans that can be selected according to your means. Even if you do not have the financial ability to pay the full tax debt amount, the IRS has resolution options that don’t require the payment of the debt all at once. Seeking the advice of a tax professional can eliminate frustration and stress when the IRS is attempting to collect an unpaid tax debt.  Don’t procrastinate responding to the IRS.  Contact RMS Tax Consulting at (520) 448-3531 and speak with Enrolled Agent Richard Schickel for a free consultation.
