I represent tax payers in the greater St. Louis area and the state of Missouri. Perhaps you know of someone that is on IRS's radar as a result of non filed tax returns or has a balance due from previous years. Fear of the unknown when you have IRS problems causes sleepness nights. So how do you know you are in IRS Collections? The following letters indicate it is time to get serious about your taxes.
Before I get to the letters if you owe the IRS there is already a tax lien against them and all there assets including future assets acquired. This is known as the silent lien. It is automatic by statute if a tax liability has been assessed.
CP 501: This is a balance due letter. This is a friendly reminder it's time to pay.
CP 503: Second request for balance due. You have 10 calendar days from the letter to respond.
CP 504: The IRS sends this letter as an urgent notice letting you know that there is still an outstanding balance and you must respond immediately. Included in the letter is a warning the IRS will intercept your state tax refund if you continue to ignore us.
LT 11: Final notice prior to levy and informing you of your rights to an appeal hearing. Time clock is running with 30 days to go. This letter is from automated collections. At this point you haven't been assigned to a local revenue officer but that doesn't mean your assets or commisions can't be levied. Automated collections have the authority to enforce payment.
