Is the IRS kinder and gentler?

Is the IRS kind?

In the last 44 years, we have seen little change in the attitude or position of the IRS towards collection of taxes owed.  The IRS is just an extension of our federal government.  It is a huge bureaucracy and the culture within the IRS is very slow to change.

What changes is the areas of emphasis in their work.  They will try different systems and strategies but they always come back to what has worked in the past.  For example, the IRS has been contracting with outside private debt collection agencies.  If you have absolute power to take someone’s property and wages, why would you even think that another collector without those powers could do better?  It was doomed to fail from the start.

The IRS will replace the private debt collection agencies by hiring over 2000 new collection officers in 2022.  These new bill collectors hired by the IRS have the power to file liens, levy wages and seize property.  Most will have the ability to do extensive investigations and they will likely make their first contact with you at your home or business.

IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman said, “I believe this work is best done by IRS employees, and I believe we have strong support from the Administration and the Congress for increased IRS enforcement resources going forward.”  Some clients interpret “kindler and gentler,” to mean the IRS will make it easier to pay or let you pay less than your fair share.  Kindler and gentler was just mask.  It is the same tiger behind the mask and as I have said many times, “when your head is in the mouth of a tiger, say nice tiger.”

We do not know how the IRS will place these new collections officers.  Will they go towards local enforcement by hiring more Revenue Officers or towards centralized collections by hiring more personnel at the Automated Collection Service?  Now that we are more than half way through 2022, we still do not see any significant change because of the number of new personnel hired by the IRS.  That is understandable since it takes about two years before they are turned loose on taxpayers.  Right now most are acting in supportive roles.

taxdebtadvisors.com – IRS Myths…

Mesa AZ Help With IRS Myths

Many clients in Mesa AZ come in with strange ideas about what the IRS can and will do to them once they “catch up with them.”  Most of the information has come from  friends, family and work associates that are just passing on myths that they were told.

Two of the most common questions:

Am I going to be thrown in jail?  Over 99% of the clients we meet with are negligent not criminal.  Their tax problems are more like bad parking tickets not a hit and run.  As long as you are willing to file back tax returns and agree to a settlement on what you can pay on the back taxes and agree to pay your taxes in the future, the problem goes from a terrible crisis to something you can manage.  Close to 30% of our clients qualify to make no payment on their historical tax liability if they stay current on their filings and payments in the future.

Are they going to take my house or car?  The IRS wants money not assets.  If you are living in an expensive home, the IRS will allow you time to put the house up for sale and downsize into a reasonably priced home.  With the current housing crisis the IRS has extended the time from six months to a year and now they are agreeing to give even more time if the taxpayers are staying current on their taxes.

You cannot control what happens in life.  Most clients were faithful taxpayers until a death, divorce, illness, or a business failure put them in a situation where they could not pay their taxes.  Even the IRS understands that this happens.  The IRS is less tolerant with the failure to file tax returns.  The IRS primarily punishes because you don’t file, not because you don’t pay.  The penalty for failing to file is 5% per month, while the penalty for failing to pay is only ½% per month.  So it is initially ten times more expensive to not file than it is to not pay.

The reality is that most clients are surprised at the results we get.  Mostly because their imagination is mixed with a lot of Mesa AZ IRS myths that create a paranoid attitude towards what the government actually expects.  Why not come in and find out today what the your options are.  I have heard many clients say, “If I had know it was going to be this easy, I would have come in long ago.”
