tax lien

When the IRS declares an individual “currently not collectible” status (or CNC), the IRS will generally stop all collection activities (i.e., will not issue levies and garnishments).

Once in this status, the 10-year statute of limitations on collecting 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 everyday 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 been filed) for any tax years owed.

Clean Slate Tax saved me over $100,000! Not only that, they released a levy on my bank account. This company was worth every penny! I would suggest using them. Their professionalism, personal touch, availability and communication were remarkable. USE THEM!

Joe is the absolute BEST!! He is very knowledgeable, helpful, compassionate, friendly, and very easy to talk to. Everyone at Clean Slate that I talked to was so understanding and nice. They made me feel comfortable sharing very private financial issues that I have a hard time talking about. They were very patient with me paying them for their services. I could not have asked for a better company! (...)

From the first contact with Clean Slate to my final day EVERYTHING was transparent, professional and incredibly friendly, straight forward and honest.
No false promises and they kept us in the loop all the time. They promised no more than they could deliver and delivered everything they set out to do.
A pay garnishment and HUGE tax burden was lifted and settled, as they had originally planned.

-R Perreault - 02/05/2020

I’m sure that the good folks at Clean Slate had heard it before....but for me, it was was an accident. That I didn’t file tax returns for 5 years. 2 family members, the 2 I loved the most, and the longest, passed within a year of each other, and it broke me. For the next 4 years. Every time I sat to do my returns, my mind went dead. And along the way, I had been hearing so many ads, “Got a tax problem? Call us”(...)

About Our Service (CNC)

Our tax team will analyze financial documents provided by the client, compare them with IRS maximum National and Local Standards, and then determine if the client qualifies. 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 your financial situation changes (i.e., winning the lottery, finding a new job, etc.).

Why Choose Us to Resolve Your Tax Problems?

We have knowledgeable tax professionals who understand the IRS and State requirements for getting our clients put on this particular status. If there is a better option than CNC or a combination of options, we will find the best balance that fits your unique situation. We will also consider all other options, such as an offer in compromise, penalty abatement, or other options, to see if you can settle your taxes for less. We take pride in being truthful to our clients on the best course of action and helping them understand why specific actions should be taken.
