Identifying an IRS Field Revenue Officers
2020 – 02/11 IRS field revenue officers (ROs) have begun knocking on the doors of taxpayers with ongoing tax compliance issues.

ROs are trained IRS civil enforcement employees who work to resolve issues, such as missing returns or unpaid taxes. They can ask for payment of a federal tax debt.
