What the IRS Can’t Do
Tax season can be stressful for almost anyone, especially if the IRS targets your tax filing as faulty or dishonest. When the IRS believes that a taxpayer has somehow distorted his or her financial situation on a tax return, it can take a certain number of actions against that person. Such action can result in the loss of property and owing the IRS a lot of money. However, while the IRS can use some means to obtain money that is owed, there are certain practices that it cannot employ in order to gain funds from a taxpayer. It’s important that you are aware of what the IRS cannot do when trying to get money from you, so that you know what’s legal and what isn’t.

- Harass you
- Harass your family
