Having to face the IRS because of your back tax issue can be more than a little scary and daunting. Hopefully you’ll never have to deal with that letter or phone call or worse, an IRS Revenue Officer showing up at your door. Dealing with this can be so overwhelming that many people try to just ignore the problem hoping and praying that it will somehow magically go away or that the IRS will forget about them. How do you know if you саn handle this situation yourself or do you need outside help? The IRS is not your friend in this situation. They are really just the largest collection agency in the world with almost unlimited ability to find and take your money.
