Once an audit is complete and a tax liability is assessed, a common belief is that the IRS can garnish wages, seize assets, and otherwise do anything it wants to get its money without any recourse on the part of taxpayer. While the IRS can take a wide range of actions to collect on tax liabilities, the fact of the matter is that it must provide due process of the law in its tax collections pursuit. Sometimes, the IRS will take unreasonable or arbitrary actions or will otherwise abuse its discretion when taxpayers propose alternative payment structures. That is when your local collections attorney can step in.
