I'd like to agree with FoolishGerald advice.

1)NEVER give out more information than is absolutely required. If the IRS (or most people in general) don't ask for it, don't give it for free.

2)Don't try to run or pull a fast one on taxing agencies. They will find you (too bad it doesn't work when you are owed a refund, you have to hunt them down) and it won't be pretty.

3)Debts owed to the IRS, again like most things in life, can't "vanish" with some smooth talking. Even bankruptcy won't make them go away.
