Facing Direct Threats from the IRS
When the IRS thinks that a taxpayer has evaded his responsibilities in some way or has withheld money from the federal government, it may take a series of actions against this person in an effort to obtain the money it feels is owed. Unfortunately, some of these initiatives can be openly hostile, like open threats from the IRS. While the IRS has the legal ability to take certain actions to get its owed funds, no one should be physically or verbally threatened in order to force payment.
If you or someone you know is facing hostile and open threats from the IRS, an experienced tax relief attorney may be able to help. With his or her help, you may be able to face the IRS and put an end to any threats.

What Creditors Can’t Do
Although allowed to take certain actions, creditors are forbidden particular actions in effort to get money from you, including:
- Misrepresenting themselves on the phone or via letter
- Lying about money that you owe
- Making false statements to get you to pay them
- Threatening physical violence
If you’ve been threatened with actions such as these, you should seek legal counsel to discuss your options for ceasing the activity and debt relief.
