I’m hoping for some guidance dealing with an uncooperative Revenue Officer.
This Revenue Officer has been harassing my client; calling her office and announce to her employees that she’s calling from the IRS, scaring her and her employees. Furthermore, she lied to my client, telling her she’s been contacting me and I haven’t returned her calls. I’m trying to find a way to deal with her without getting into a pissing contest with the IRS.
Her conducts not only bypassed my POA, but she’s also violating my client’s rights to privacy and confidentiality.
Any thoughts on how to handle her would be appreciated.
Lou, I will cover this tomorrow on the monthly Q&A but send a fax to her and the supervisor explaining this and asking that she contact you as you are the POA. At this point I would not worry about pissing them off – they have already gone off the rails. If it continues let me know and we can get to the territory manager in that area through Paul Mamo, the Director of Collections. You can also file a 911 with the taxpayer advocate and get them involved.
