CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (CitizenWire) — Want to rate your experience with an IRS employee? Have an IRS complaint? This is your chance to tell the world. Originally designed as an IRS profile database, IRSDoghouse.com has evolved into a free and anonymous web site where anyone can rate – negatively or positively – their personal and professional experiences with IRS employees.
The IRS certainly holds the tax-paying public to task and now is the time for practitioners and other tax-paying individuals to reward or bite back.
Ratings are based on dog bones – a single dog bone rating is the least favorable; five dog bones is the best.
People simply share their personal experiences and can post information regarding whether the IRS employee was helpful, clueless, difficult to work with; knowledgeable; and more.
For instance, one rater provided an IRS employee with a single dog bone rating. Reviews allow for character descriptions and remarkable details.
In the characteristic section, the reviewer explained that this IRS employee has been a government employee too long. She was clueless, difficult to work with and would be fired if she worked in the private sector.
On the other hand, a positive review of five bones reported that the IRS employee was able to negotiate; was fair, helpful and intelligent; and interacted with him in a kind, courteous and professional manner. This IRS employee demonstrated positive communication skills and a pleasant attitude. He was a pleasure to work with and gave the benefit of the doubt to the practitioner/taxpayer. He also allowed ample time to comply with requests. The rater said, “This is one of the good guys in the IRS.”
So, people with IRS complaints now have a safe and anonymous place to vent or to share “feel-good” stories.
And, if people don’t wish to post any comments at all, they can still read about practitioners’ and other tax payer experiences to know what they may be up against. It’s a helpful resource all round.
The site is free to use and is monitored for extreme profanity, hateful comments and threats; these will be removed. The administrator of this site has the authority to remove any posting that is not deemed appropriate.
