Requesting Your File to Be Sent to a Local Tax Office
Reasons to deal with a local tax officer instead of an ACS collector:
- Unable to reach an agreement with the collector
- Incorrect bill
- If collector knows your bank, employer, residence he can levy bank accounts or wages; assigned tax officers are more cautious.
- Tax officers may offer longer payment plans and more options if you give more financial details
You must have exceptional reasons to get transferred from the Audit Collection Service to a local tax office such as, if you oppose the tax amount and want a full explanation from a tax officer. In such an instance, ACS collectors must transfer your file to a local tax office in order to determine accuracy.
As long as your reason is not completely untrue you may keep asking for a transfer even if you’re turned down. The more you owe, the better your chances are of transferring from the ACS to a local tax office. Put your reasons for objecting in writing and request a meeting with a local tax officer.
