At Bryson Law Firm, LLC, we frequently represent Taxpayers through IRS Audits.

We frequently get calls from potential clients who are looking to see if the “statute of limitations” on an old tax debt has run yet or not. Here’s a quick overview as to how the IRS’ CSEDs (Collection Statute Expiration Dates) work.

Businesses often close leaving behind various debts, including taxes. It’s a common belief that once the business closes those debts die with the business, so why are you getting an IRS notice years later?

The short answer – it depends. In order for the IRS to have the authorization to seize your physical property, such as money or land, the IRS must first issue a series of notices requesting that you remit payment for your outstanding balance. Eventually, the IRS will issue a Final Notice of Intent to Levy (FNIL; usually reflected as a CP90 or LT11 in the upper right-hand corner of the notice) which is your last chance submit payment. If you cannot afford to make payment in full, the FNIL provides you with a 30-day time frame to file a Collection Due Process Appeal. If no Appeal is filed and no resolution request has been submitted, then the IRS can move forward with a levy upon your banking account in order to collect the debt owed.

Unlike other creditors, the IRS has unprecedented power to collect unpaid debts. In fact, the IRS doesn’t have to seek court approval to file a lien or seize your property to satisfy your debts. Whereas an IRS tax lien is a claim on the taxpayer’s property, an IRS levy is much more intrusive and involves the actual seizure of a taxpayer’s property.
