IRS DEBT EXPIRES?
By Law, the IRS has a deadline to collect unpaid Taxes: the CSED (Collection Statute Expiration Date). While there are several things that can “toll” (extend) this deadline, in general, the IRS only has 10 years after the ASSESSMENT of Taxes against you – generally this will be when your return is processed – and is often within a year from the filing of your Tax Return (although the IRS technically has up to three years to assess after filing). After the expiration of the CSED, the IRS is barred from collecting any Tax Debt owed.
If this seems confusing, it is meant to be – that is how the IRS works. We know the Tax Laws, and we know little-known facts like this. Let us analyze your Tax situation. We will determine your CSED and determine if you are eligible for relief under the Tax Laws – or whether this can be used as a strategy for settling your Tax Debt.
