Q. What if an IRS Revenue Officer Leaves a Card on my Door?

Updated: Apr 18, 2019

IRS Revenue Officer Information If an IRS Revenue Officer leaves their card at your door, you need to contact Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc immediately because you need to be protected.

An IRS Revenue Officer will most likely come yo your home or business on a Friday. The Revenue Officer will leave a card on your door. The idea behind this enforcement tactic is to have the taxpayer thinking about the tax debt problem the entire weekend. This will create a great deal of anxiety thus the taxpayer is very vulnerable. The Revenue Officers would like you to be very nervous so that you will answer every question and to say more than you should.


Should you be confronted by an IRS Revenue Officer, you need to be polite and non-confrontational. You need to let the IRS Revenue Officer know that you have a Tax Attorney and that your Tax Attorney will call the IRS Revenue Officer back. Even if you do not have IRS tax representation, you need to do this. Your next step is to immediately hire an experienced IRS Tax Attorney.


IRS Revenue Officers are the most experienced and sophisticated collection employees within the IRS. Revenue Officers have "heard it all". Don't think that you are going "to pull one over on them".

They work high dollar cases identified by the IRS to be of significance. The focus is given to business cases, employment tax liabilities (940/941 problems), repeat offenders and non-filers. An IRS Revenue Officer is a federal law enforcement officer.

The Revenue Officer function is localized, with their offices located near your home or business. Most Revenue Officers work from their home. IRS Revenue Officers are “field agents,” meaning they are expected to get out of the office and get into the field. Revenue Officers will show up at your home or business unexpectedly and yes they have the gun, the badge, and the handcuffs.

Should your case be assigned to an IRS Revenue Officer, as written above, you should expect a visit from an IRS Revenue Officer on a Friday and quite frequently before a holiday weekend. The IRS wants to "scare the crap out of you". You should be scared.

A visit from an IRS Revenue Officer should get your attention and will have your mind racing. If the visit from the IRS does not gain your immediate attention, then there is something wrong with you.

If you are not in your office or at home, the Revenue Officer will leave their business card/calling card at the door. You will be requested to contact them by a set date. If you fail to voluntarily comply, the Revenue Officer has the power to summons your attendance at an IRS office. 

If you ignore the IRS, you can expect the Revenue Officer to start procedures to take your bank accounts, wages, retirement accounts and/or receivables. Revenue Officers can also seize any equity you have in cars, autos and business equipment, but these are usually last resorts in severe cases.

An IRS Revenue Officer can padlock your business.

Let that sink in.

If you have received a visit from an IRS Revenue Officer, you should contact an experienced IRS tax professional. If you do not have professional tax representation, you are going to be at a distinct disadvantage.


The IRS created a joint task force of Revenue Agents and Tax Auditors from the IRS Examination Division, Revenue Officers from the Collection Division and Special Agents from the Criminal Division to locate non-filers (#unfiledtaxreturns) and secure compliance with requirements.

The IRS Revenue Officer wants case resolution and a closed file as much as you do.

Case resolution can mean an IRS Settlement through the IRS Offer in Compromise program, an IRS Payment Plan / Installment Agreement or even having your case closed because you are Currently not Collectible. Everything depends on your current finances.

If you have received a visit from an IRS Revenue Officer, yes, it is serious and requires your immediate attention. You need experienced tax relief representation.

You do have Rights. The amount that the IRS claims that you owe may be incorrect. You may be eligible to settle your Tax Debt.
