MUST READ! Why you need to act NOW...
Unprecedented in the last decade, Congress has authorized a funding increase for the IRS. The IRS has resolved to step-up enforced collection actions significantly. They are promising more audits, liens, and levies.
Further, recent (2018) statistics show levies increasing (8%) for the first time in almost a decade. At the same time, we have heard from the top levels of the agency that we can expect 2020 to bring significant growth in liens and levies being issued.
New Commissioner Charles "Chuck" Rettig has already hired over 1,000 new Revenue Officers and Revenue Agents with another 1,000 planned for 2020. Most of the new hires are enforcement and collection personnel including criminal investigation ("CI") personnel.
Self-described as an "enforcement guy" Commissioner Rettig stated that he is, "Passionate about making sure we enforce tax laws. A robust enforcement effort assures compliant taxpayers that those who fail to comply risk the consequences of such non-compliance."
