IRS enforcement in tax collection and tax audit activity is on the rise

IRS Oversight Board Annual Report 2007 is now available – see more details below Mike Habib, EA
myIRSTaxRelief.com As you can see from the report below, the IRS places “<span as their TOP priority, that will involve enforcement of their collection activity of back taxes owed, and enforcement of their tax audit activity. The IRS must strive to achieve the standard of “great” performance and settle for nothing less, the IRS Oversight Board said in its latest annual report. The board called for “breakthrough” agency performances in four areas taxpayer service, enforcement, human capital and information technology. For example, to enhance customer service, IRS must continually assess taxpayer needs and implement education and outreach services tailored to the needs of specific taxpayer groups, the board said. IRS also must apply the results of its research efforts to improve its enforcement activity. In addition, the agency must address the loss of unique skills and institutional knowledge that results from the normal retirement rate of some 4,000 employees annually. “The board has challenged the IRS to rise to an unprecedented level of performance in all parts of its mission,” said Paul Cherecwich, chairman of the board. “It will not be easy and there are no givens. But the board firmly believes that today’s IRS is up to the task and the end results will be worth the journey and the hard work.” The annual report can be found at http://www.ustreas.gov/irsob/reports/2008/IRSOB_Annual-Report_2007.pdf

Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation!Marcie R.

Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied!Marshall W.

I’ve seen and heard plenty of commercials on TV and radio for businesses offering tax help. I did my research on many of them only to discover numerous complaints and unresolved tax issues. I found Mike Habib through my own online search and contacted him. He was very professional with great communication, always answering my questions and concerns. Mike resolved my complicated tax problem just as he said he would. I would definitely recommend his services to family and friends.Nancy & Sal V.
