If you receive a call from the IRS, there are several things you can do to make the process smoother:

  • Remain friendly: Being confrontational will not help your case as the IRS holds all the power in this situation.

  • Be patient: The IRS can be repetitive and detail-oriented, but it is a necessary part of the tax resolution process.

  • Update your address: Notify the IRS of any change of address to receive important notices on time and avoid missing deadlines.

  • Respond promptly: Always respond to any letters or notices from the IRS, but only after you fully understand the situation.

  • Verify the caller: Ask for the name and ID number of any IRS employee who calls you before sharing any information.

  • Stay calm: Fear or nervousness may give the impression that you have something to hide. Seeking proper guidance through the tax resolution process is crucial.


Dealing with the IRS can be daunting, and it's important to remember that they are the experts in tax matters. Communication with the IRS and its employees or agents can heavily influence your chances of success in resolving tax problems.
