How IRS collection works

Education & Training with Glass Consulting LLC

I enjoy helping a Small Business Owner or Self-employed person set goals, craft their vision, mission, and purpose and understand their numbers.   To be honest, a key indicator of success is how much tax you pay. Sometimes, taxpayers fall behind in meeting their tax obligations. Most need help in understanding how the IRS collection process works:

  1.        Tax returns are filed by the taxpayer (or by the IRS).
  2.        Tax amounts owed are assessed. If you owe taxes, the IRS will send you a bill.
  3.        If you don’t pay your first bill, the IRS will send you at least one more bill.
  4.        If you still don’t pay after you receive your final bill, the IRS will begin collection actions.

 Collection actions can range from applying your tax refunds to tax due until the tax debt is paid in full to seizing your property and assets through wage garnishments, clearing out bank accounts, and filing tax liens.

 If you or someone you know needs help navigating the IRS collection process of if they have unfiled returns or back taxes, contact us. We can help resolve your issues.
