What is Revenue Officer Assignment?
A Revenue Officer is an IRS field collector sent to collect unpaid tax. Usually, assigned to a taxpayer’s collection cases are pursued more seriously by the IRS.
These practices are common in business tax cases. They can be assigned to personal tax liabilities as well. Furthermore, there are many scenarios when a Revenue Officer is delegated to a claim. The IRS has a system run by a computer called the Automated Collections System or ACS. Liens, levies, and garnishments are issued electronically based on data the IRS has for you on file. After ACS has exhausted all collection methods, the case is routed to a field agent.
Above all, a Revenue Officer works from the IRS field collection office, which means that they will personally visit or make an appearance to a business or residence of the taxpayer. A Revenue Officer will make sure all the necessary or required IRS notices are issued as:
- Balance Due Notice (Letter 3174)
- Summary of Taxpayer Contact (Form 9297)
- Final Notice or Notice of Intent to Levy
- Notice of Your Rights to a Hearing (Letter 1058)
- Notice of Federal Tax Lien Filing
- Your Right to a Hearing Under IRC 6320 (Letter 3172(DO)
- Notice of Federal Tax Lien (Form 668(Y)(c)
