The good news is that there are a wide range of very positive options for solving problems with both the Internal Revenue Service and the Connecticut Department of Revenue Services. Revenue officers are highly motivated to reach a voluntary settlement with properly prepared taxpayers. While revenue officers have the power of federal and state laws in their favor, their job is the proper collection of money for governmental authorities and they are quick to respond to voluntary arrangements that avoid the horrors of levies, attachments and seizures. There are various ways to assure a successful outcome. So be prompt, be prepared with a well-founded plan for resolution, and get a professional to present your case and advocate for your side. Always remember:
Create a Proper Plan and Be an Advocate
Revenue officers are usually long-term, highly experienced and intelligent government employees. They know the difference between a novice proposal and a well-prepared, reality-based tax resolution program. Proper evaluation of your specific problem and your specific resources for resolution is essential to a tax resolution program that will be acceptable to the taxing authority and affordable to the taxpayer in trouble. Never rely on a revenue officer to author or create a plan for you. It's our role as your advocates to work with you to create a viable plan.
Revenue officers at the state and federal levels are quick to respond to a well-founded, strongly documented proposal presented by an experienced professional who knows the demands and requirements of their job. Revenue officers embrace plans that are reasonable and achievable. They are judged and reviewed by how many files they "get off their desk," how much they can collect, and their acceptance of plans that are fair to the government and don't get broken. The last thing they need is a plan that's accepted but gets broken again. Their superiors review them in accordance with their record of success and a tax professional knows how to use that motivation to make a revenue officer work hard toward your success. Proper advocacy requires that you create a program that plays to the factual "numbers" of each case and addresses the needs of the revenue officer in charge of approving the plan created on your behalf.
Revenue Officers want to see people who speak their language. Authorities at the IRS and DRS speak a certain language and live in a certain world that is foreign territory to the average business or individual taxpayer. Certain solutions are appropriate, but many suggestions are not even possible. When you speak to a revenue officer or other government employees, you need the assistance of someone who speaks their language and respects their authority, responsibilities and limitations. Ill-prepared, unreasonable requests don't respect the world that revenue officers live in and are likely to be met with denial and eventually distrust.
Tax problems with the Internal Revenue Service or the Connecticut Department of Revenue Services present certain special issues, but they remain highly solvable. There is nothing quite so encouraging as a properly conceived plan, presented in a solid, face-to-face meeting. After all, revenue officers are professionals who work for all of us and are highly motivated to meet with your representative and solve a mutual problem.
