When the IRS declares an individual “currently not collectible”, the IRS will generally stop all collection activities (i.e., will not issue levies and/or garnishments). Once in this status the 10-year statute of limitations on the collection of the tax debt is still running (with certain exceptions). If the individual’s financial situation does not improve in this time, the tax debts owed will expire. Getting declared currently not collectible can help a taxpayer get back to normal life without worrying about the IRS taking further collection actions that will limit the funds needed for everyday necessities. Realize that in many cases the IRS will still file a tax lien (if one has not be filed) for any tax years owed.
About Our Currently Not Collectible Service (CNC)
Our tax team will analyze financial documents provided by the client, compare them with IRS maximum National and Local Standards, then make a determination if the client qualifies. In order to qualify for CNC status, it must be shown that collection of the taxes owed would create financial hardship. Once we determine that the client would qualify, and the proper supporting documentation is provided, we will negotiate with the IRS to put you into CNC status. Once approved for CNC, collection activity will cease until, or unless your financial situation changes (ie winning the lottery, new job, etc.).
