If you have an IRS problem and find it difficult to deal with or understand, you need to know that it’s not your fault. The Federal Tax Code is so complicated that it’s difficult for anyone to understand it completely.
As an experienced IRS tax attorney I would like to offer you some free advice on what you should know before you speak to anyone from the IRS.
First, never voluntarily tell the IRS anything unless they have specifically asked you for the information. This is extremely important for you to understand. You must only give the IRS only the information that they have asked for and nothing else. The IRS actually counts on taxpayers who voluntarily give up too much information.
Second, never tell the IRS something that you know is not true. Lying to an employee of the IRS is a criminal offense. If the IRS catches you in a lie, you may be charged with perjury, which can ultimately subject you to time in prison.
Third, you should never answer any question that you don’t understand completely. Remember what I said about the complexity of the tax code? You should not admit to or speak about anything that you do not understand. If you are not completely sure about your answer to a question from an IRS employee, you should let them know that you "don’t know" or "can’t recall." This is important as the IRS will not forgive any penalty or interest they have assessed against you if they feel that you have not been upfront and honest with them.
I hope that this advice will help you. IRS problems are serious business and they deserve serious attention. Procrastination will not resolve your IRS problem. However, there are a variety of ways to resolve your IRS problem and move forward with a stress-free life.
