Does the IRS Really Make Unannounced Visits to Taxpayer's Homes?

Posted by Lisa Albritton on Jun 16, 2017 8:11:27 AM


The IRS initiates most contacts through regular mail delivered by the United States Postal Service. However, there are circumstances in which the IRS will call or come to a home or business

 Some reasons may be:

  • A taxpayer has an overdue tax bill
  • To secure a delinquent tax return or a delinquent employment tax payment
  • To tour a business as part of an audit
  • During criminal investigations

Even then, taxpayers will generally first receive several notices from the IRS in the mail.
