Is the IRS knocking on your door? Don’t let them in!!

How to handle the IRS at your Front Door? Is a Revenue Officer or a Revenue Agent visiting you soon?

If you find yourself face to face with an IRS Agent (Revenue Officer for collection issues, or Revenue Agent for audit and examination issues), at your front door you must remember to avoid these common mistakes:

1. Don’t invite them into your home or business.
2. Don’t answer any question. No matter how innocent they sound.
3. Don’t provide them paperwork or documentation.

What you should do is ask the IRS agent for their business card and the purpose of their visit.

Explain to them that your professional tax representative will contact them and that all future communications will go through them.

Be polite but firm. Do not let them intimidate you into talking about anything.

Your rights under the Taxpayer Bill of Rights allow you to have a Professional Tax Representative handle your IRS negotiations.

Often taxpayers become understandably nervous and invite the IRS Agent into their home or business and start telling them all kinds of things.


Usually you’re helping the IRS and hurting yourself. The IRS Agent is trained to prepare a mental inventory of all assets they see in your home or business.

Mike has given us peace of mind! He helped negotiate down a large balance and get us on a payment plan that we can afford with no worries! The stress of dealing with the IRS is huge and Mike helped us through it all. The peace of mind is invaluable, thank you Mike!April S.
Mike Habib - Thank you for being so professional and honest and taking care of my brothers IRS situation. We are so relieved it is over and the offer in compromise process went just as you said. Mike is very professional and will give you honest answers to the OIC process and you can really trust him. You won't be sorry you chose him!Joe and Deborah V.
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.
