Back Tax Letters
Tax Defense Network: IRS Notice on Back Taxes & You
Tax Defense Network believes it is in the best interest of a taxpayer to communicate with the IRS if they owe back taxes. The IRS has the power to satisfy a tax debt through the seizure of property and assets if the taxpayer does not attempt to resolve the debt. Tax Defense Network explains that the IRS keeps taxpayers informed about how much money is owed, their current proceedings, and their future actions through CP notices and letters.
Tax Defense Network: CP-Notices for Clearing Back Taxes
Tax Defense Network informs taxpayers about the CP notices they can expect to receive from the IRS if they have tax debt. CP-71, CP-71A, CP-71C and CP-71D are notices that you receive to remind you of the amount you owe in taxes, penalties, and interest.
If you have a balance due on one of your tax accounts, you might receive notice CP-501. The letter will explain your payment options. Tax Defense Nework states that taxpayers will need to pay the amount owed by the date on the notice.
Tax Defense Network briefs taxpayers on the CP notices the IRS sends regarding the various IRS resolution programs. Notice CP-521 will remind you that you have an Installment Agreement payment due, and requests payment immediately.
Notice CP-523 informs you of the intent to terminate your Installment Agreement because of default, and explains levy procedures.
Notice CP-161 will request payment for the unpaid balance of tax due. Tax Defense Network informs that the severity of a CP notice will depend upon how much back taxes are due, how long the tax debt stays unpaid, and how much effort the taxpayer makes in resolving the debt.
Tax Defense Network: Get Help
Tax Defense Network always advises taxpayers who have complicated tax issues to consult tax experts. For initial queries, you can call the IRS’ toll-free number listed on the notice.
