Imagine soft music playing in the background.
And a soothing voice saying:
“Once upon the time, we used to get home visits
From the milk-man; the doctor.
Home visits — those were the days.”
Nostalgia for the days gone by
But be nostalgic no more.
Good news: in 2020 home visits are back in vogue
This time from IRS
(Did the soft music abruptly stopped?)
Home-visits from IRS agents
Do you know someone who has an outstanding tax liability?
And has this someone repeatedly ignored IRS’ payment-request letters?
Then you may want to warn them of impending IRS agent home visit.
IRS is now going to send their agents on home-visits.
Furthermore, the visit will almost always be unannounced.
(Never underestimate the element of surprise!)
How will you know he (or she) is from the IRS?
Ask for ID’s, obviously.
Your rights as taxpayer:
The IRS officer needs to show you two (2) forms of identification.
That include serial number and photo.
You have the right to request to see both.
Now go make sure you have a fresh pot of coffee on.
You gotta show some hospitality when your friendly IRS agent drops by for visit, right?
Thanks for visiting.
