The IRS has announced its agents will be conducting unannounced in-person meetings with delinquent business and individual taxpayers.
The IRS routinely conducts these face-to-face visits, it said in an announcement last month. The primary purpose of these visits is to make contact with taxpayers with a previously known tax issue that wasn’t resolved through mail contact, the agency said.
These meetings are scheduled in areas with a limited number of available revenue officers due to declining IRS resources. The first face-to-face contact from a revenue officer is almost always unannounced.
