Bring Us Your "Box Under the Bed"
Last year I was approached by
a woman whose mother had, out of fear and trepidation, been hiding from the
IRS, All of her records for quite a few
years had been neatly stored in a box under her bed.
Although her daughter knew of
the situation, the mother would not discuss the matter as it was simply too
As it happened, the mother
lost her husband and she decided to sell her house and move into an adult
community. The one catch was that the
IRS had a lien on the house.
One day, the daughter noticed something taped to the front
door. It was a note from the IRS
indicating that they had paid a visit.That was it; they couldn't sell the house and now the IRS was making
house calls. She knew she had to do something,.
After much discussion, the
mother was convinced to bring me the box.
The two came to my office where I assured her that she was not alone,
that we could take care of her, and, most importantly, that she would not have
to face the IRS.
I started to open the box and
she immediately stood up,said "just do what you need to do," and she was gone.
She now resides in her new
home and no longer hears from the IRS.
Don't we all have a "box
under the bed" that we'd like to get rid of?
