A revenue officer is an IRS employee who focuses on collecting back taxes and pursuing back tax returns. A revenue officer usually handles cases that involve a large amount of taxes ($100,000 or more) and/or multiple unfiled tax returns.
Revenue officers typically meet with you and/or your authorized representative in person to work toward resolution. It’s important to meet deadlines that the revenue officer sets, provide information, and comply with filing requirements. If you don’t, the revenue officer has the authority to pursue enforcement actions, such as levies and liens, to collect taxes.
