Feels Like I was Sentenced to 42 Years of Doing Tax Work

I started working for the Internal Revenue Service in 1981.  I was a tax collector for 33 years.  Then I retired and in a quest to help people with the challenging tax dragon, I started RMS Tax Consulting LLC.  I represent people in their troubles before the IRS.  I also do tax returns.  Sometimes it feels like I have been sentenced to life in the tax world.  When the IRS is functional, that is no problem for me.  But the IRS of today has been decimated by retirements and budget cuts over the last 12 years.  The IRS is so far behind that I am currently getting letter responses from them for letters that I wrote in March of 2021. 

The IRS is barely functional right now.  There is supposed to be new funding, but Congress is forever bickering about that.  So that is why this the indeed the best time ever to owe the IRS.

I have written four books about the situation at the IRS. “Now is the Best Time Ever to Owe the IRS,” and “the IRS Does Not Work Anymore.” Both are available on Amazon. By Richard M. Schickel, I believe that every taxpayer needs to get a plan for getting the most out of the tax system as they can. You can pay me for one year for a review and then go use Turbo Tax if you like in the future.  


If you are being audited or owe the IRS, you always need representation or you will screw yourself. I have seen it happen where taxpayers hurt their cases by playing into the hands of the IRS.  In the IRS, it’s both what you know and who you know.  I am the guy that can get you an installment agreement that can last up to ten years. So in working with the IRS, it is not who you know, but what you know.


I am an Enrolled Agent licensed by the IRS. I can work in all 50 states. Please give me a call to see how I can help you today. 520-448-3531
