US Taxpayers Should Never Communicate Directly With the IRS

San Diego IRS Tax Attorney

It is important to understand a US taxpayer should never communicate directly with the IRS. The IRS is a U.S. agency with tremendous power. IRS revenue officers and auditors are highly skilled and trained interrogators and their interview tactics are designed to get you to reveal information that they can and will use against you.

If the IRS has sent you a notice, or an auditor or IRS revenue officer is attempting to contact you, we advise you to contact Allen Barron or call us immediately at 866-631-3470 for a free consultation.

We are able to manage all communications with the IRS on your behalf, and can protect you from the types of information disclosures and improper tactics that expose you to deeper debt with the IRS.

IRS agents are not looking to befriend you, and are not interested in hearing about your challenges. They have already developed a strategy for you, whether it involves an audit or a collection, and they are going to do everything possible to get you to disclose information that increases the strength of their position.

Many U.S. taxpayers, in good conscience, believe that if they are extremely cooperative with the IRS, they will receive the benefit of the doubt. This is simply not true. The IRS welcomes these types of interactions, as they provide ample opportunity to expand the scope and range of the audit, and the amount they will be able to collect from you after a Notice of Determination is reached. This is why a US taxpayer should never communicate directly with the IRS.

The Importance of the Attorney-Client Privilege When Dealing with the IRS

Why should you call our office instead of a CPA, accounting firm, tax preparer, or financial advisor? Quite simply, because of the protections provided by the attorney-client privilege. Our lead attorney, Janathan L. Allen, works with the CPAs and tax and accounting specialists at Allen Barron to provide all of the accounting and tax preparation you would receive from other professionals – with one critical difference:

The IRS can and will subpoena all correspondence, notes, documents, receipts, emails, text messages, phone messages, and any other communication you have had with a CPA, tax preparer, or financial advisor, and these professionals must comply. The IRS will then use your own information and the notes of these professionals against you.

When you call Allen Barron and work with Janathan Allen and her team, we can extend the solid legal protections of the attorney-client privilege. The IRS cannot subpoena or otherwise demand access to any conversations, information, personally created documentation, or disclosures you make under the protection of the attorney-client privilege. This unique protection allows us to have substantive and candid conversations about your financial and tax issues, while protecting your information from the IRS. We provide only what is required by law to fulfill requests of the IRS auditor that are allowed by law.  You should never communicate directly with the IRS.

You Should Never Face the IRS Alone – Contact an Experienced IRS Tax Lawyer Serving San Diego

It is important to understand why a US taxpayer should never communicate directly with the IRS. Our clients appreciate the peace of mind they receive after our first conversation. The IRS is intimidating, and the power they wield is genuinely a threat to your money, and in some cases, your personal liberty. IRS procedures are complex, and auditors’ requests for information are veiled attempts to expose you to deep audits and a huge tax assessment. Protect yourself. You should never speak directly to the IRS or an IRS auditor or revenue officer.

If you have received a notice from the IRS or have been contacted by an IRS revenue officer or auditor, we invite you to immediately call for a free consultation at 866-631-3470 or contact us to schedule an appointment in person.
