The Best Tax Resolution Representation

Who Best to Represent You before the IRS

The Important Differences between an
IRS Revenue Agent versus an IRS Revenue Officer

Revenue Agent

The following is a very brief outline of the role the Revenue Agent plays in the examination and collection process of assessed taxes

  • Assigned a tax return for examination
  • Decides whether or not to audit
    If return warrants an examination
  • contacts the Taxpayer 
  • Establishes date, time and location for initial appointment
  • Interviews the taxpayer
  • Reviews taxpayers books and records
  • Expands or contracts the scope of the audit
  • If no adjustments, closes the case agreed.
  • If adjustments to tax return are needed, prepares examination report
  • If agreed by the taxpayer, requests payment of tax assessment
  • Closes Case Agreed
  • No agreement then the taxpayer has an opportunity to "appeal" if warranted
  • No agreement, no appeal, case is closed from Examination to be processed for further action and issuance of the notice of deficiency 90-Day letter.

At this point, the Revenue Agent has collected all of the necessary financial information on the taxpayer that was possible during the examination.  Often, the Revenue Agent meets with collection and involves collection in certain areas.  The Revenue Officer has some tax training but not enough to do an examination. 

Many taxpayers need assistance during the examination process.  The best choice for assistance is the Enrolled Agent with IRS examination experience as an IRS Revenue Agent.  The Revenue Agent is the one that assesses the taxes and knows the case, not the Revenue Officer.  At this point, the Revenue Officer is not even involved in the assessment or examination process.   Consequently, the best choice to negotiate with the Revenue Agent doing the examination would be another Revenue Agent that can understand the entire process.   

Former IRS Revenue Agent

When discussing IRS employees, it is essential to make a clear distinction between Revenue Agents and Revenue Officers. IRS Revenue Agents assess taxes, and they are not involved directly with the collection of back taxes. However, the Revenue Agent has no problem working with Revenue Officers in releasing tax liens and levies and in avoiding the garnishment of your wages.   If you have been contacted about an audit of your tax return, you are being contacted by a Revenue Agent. If you have been contacted about your back taxes, you are now dealing with IRS Revenue Officers who are in charge on making sure you pay your tax debt.

The Substitute for Return (SFR)

When a Revenue Officer comes after you to collect on an IRS prepared tax return, it is best to have a former IRS Revenue Agent like myself involved.  Many taxes are assessed by what is known as the Substitute for Return process.  If this is the case, the assessed taxes may or may not be correct.  The assessment does not provide for credits, exemptions and taxable deductions.  If a Revenue Officer becomes involved to collect, the best assistance for the taxpayer would come from an Enrolled Agent with experience as a Revenue Agent.   The Revenue Officer is not trained in accounting  and taxes to any level of expertise.  A minimum amount, if any, of knowledge and training in accounting and taxes is needed for the Revenue Officer to collect the taxes. 

An Enrolled Agent is a taxation expert and can easily prepare any back tax returns needing to be filed.  Often, what is needed to reduce the sizeable assessment is to prepare the back tax returns for submission to Audit Reconsideration. 

My Fees Are Exceptionally Affordable

I routinely resolve my client's tax problems in their best interests at a very affordable price.  As a former IRS Revenue Agent, I am far more qualified to resolve tax problems, assist taxpayers in their audits and prepare their tax returns than the majority of professionals in the field of tax resolution.  And, of course, I know first hand how to work with Revenue Officers who are in the process of tax collection enforcement action. 

When dealing with the IRS, my number one goal is to find a workable resolution to your tax debt and unfiled income taxes that satisfies both your needs and the collection demands of the IRS at the least cost to you emotionally and financially. 

When it comes to a decision that could affect the financial future of you and your family, do you want anything less than the very best in professional representation? If you want a trusted representative who can obtain relief from taxes for you and end the burden of your tax crisis, call  Colleen E. Harrison, Enrolled Agent, and former IRS Revenue Agent.  It  is time for you to have the freedom you deserve from your IRS or State tax burden.
