TAX RELIEF: IRS Notice Information - Don't be Afraid to Open IRS Correspondence

IRS LETTERS & NOTICES: Do not be frightened and afraid to open any correspondence from the IRS. This information is brought to you by Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc.. We are Flat Fee Tax Relief Service that is the nation's leader in having an IRS Wage Levy stopped and released in 1 day/24 hours. That's a guarantee.


The Federal Government (states as well) is broke. As the legislators argue over tax cuts and spending, the IRS continues to do what "they do" best. The IRS is filing Tax Liens and executing IRS Wage Levies / IRS Garnishment (s) at record highs.


The IRS is not "warmer and fuzzier". The IRS is the worlds most powerful collection agency with broad powers to collect money.



The Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc.

 IRS  Income Tax Relief Help-line:

1 - 800 - 589 - 3078


The IRS has a series of letters and notices that are sent at different intervals. Each letter ratchets up the level of urgency regarding your IRS tax liability. Each IRS Notice has counter actions. 




DON'T BE AFRAID TO OPEN UP AN IRS NOTICE.

If you have been sent certified mail from the IRS, be sure to contact Flat Fee Tax Service. Do not waive your rights due to your inaction. 






1. IRS Notice CP-501 - is a reminder that a tax obligation is due and owing to IRS. It is the initial billing notice. It is a reminder that you owe the IRS a back tax debt and that further action could take place.

2. IRS Notice CP 503 - notifies the taxpayer that immediate action is required on behalf of the taxpayer. This is the 2nd IRS Notice. It notifies you that the back tax owed is still pending.

3. IRS Notice CP- 504 (“Urgent”) -
Final Notice - Balance Due. The IRS “intends to levy on certain assets” (IRS Wage Levy / IRS Bank Levy) not long after issuing an IRS Notice CP-504. The taxpayer is requested to "Respond Now". If you do not respond to this notice you can expect a wage levy, bank levy or a federal tax lien filing.

4. IRS Notice CP-297 or a CP-90 -
“Final Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to a Hearing.” The IRS Notice CP-297 ( IRS Notice CP-90 ) is the last chance you have before a federal tax levy (IRS Wage Levy / IRS Bank Levy) and federal tax liens are filed and federal action is taken. You have 30 days before action will be taken.





5. IRS Notice CP-298 or IRS Notice CP-91 - is the
“Final Notice before Levy on Social Security Benefits.” Your Social Security Benefits are being placed in IRS levy mode because of an unpaid tax liability. The CP-91 notifies you that the IRS intends on taking 15% of your Social Security check. The next step is an IRS Wage Levy / IRS Garnishment or IRS Bank Levy.


PLEASE NOTE: The IRS is not limited to 15% of your Social Security. There is what is called "Manual Levy". A Manual Levy can take your entire wage, paycheck, Social Security (including Disability/SSDI). For more information on an IRS Manual Levy, visit our Website.







If you are receiving Notices from the IRS, you may not be opening them or picking them up at the Post Office. You do not have to be frightened by these Notices. You have Rights. There are protections. 


Should you decide to ignore these Notices from the IRS, you should expect your wages, your paycheck, your Social Security check and/or your bank account to be levied by the IRS.

Take action to protect your rights.

What is an IRS Levy? How Do I Have an IRS Levy Stopped and Released Today?


Q. WHAT IS AN IRS LEVY?

An IRS Levy is a legal seizure of your property to satisfy a back tax debt. Levies are different from a tax liens. A tax lien is a claim used as security for the tax debt, while a tax levy actually takes the property to satisfy the back tax liability.

If you do not pay the taxes owed to the IRS (or make arrangements to settle your back tax debt), the IRS may seize and sell any type of real or personal property that you own or have an interest in. For instance,
  • The IRS could seize and sell property that you hold (such as your car, boat, house, paintings, collectibles, etc), or
  • The IRS could levy property that is yours but is held by someone else [such as your wages, Social Security, Social Security Disability , retirement accounts, dividends, bank accounts, licenses (medical, law, etc), rental income, accounts receivables, the cash loan value of your life insurance, or commissions].

The IRS will usually levy only after these three requirements are met:
  • The IRS must have assessed the tax and sent you a Notice and Demand for Payment;
  • You have neglected or you have refused to pay the back tax liability; and
  • The IRS sent you a Final Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to A Hearing (IRS Notice CP 90) at least 30 days before the levy. The IRS can give you this notice in person, leave it at your home or your usual place of business, or the IRS could send it to your last known address by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested. Please note: the IRS can levy your state tax refund.  In that case, you may receive a Notice of Levy on Your State Tax Refund, Notice of Your Right to Hearing after the levy.




Q. WHAT CAN I DO IF THE IRS EXECUTES A LEVY AGAINST ME?

You could contact us at Flat Fee Tax Relief if you want to save your paycheck now. 

Flat Fee Tax Service, inc. guarantees to have an IRS Levy on your wages or Social Security check 

stopped and released within 24 hours.





Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. will ensure that you get the the best deal possible and we will let you know how your tax liability can be reduced further.

The 2nd choice is to handle it yourself. If you choose to do this, then continue reading and hope for the best.



You can ask an IRS manager to review your case, or you may request a Collection Due Process hearing with the Office of Appeals by filing a request for a Collection Due Process hearing with the IRS office listed on your notice. You must file your request within 30 days of the date on your notice. Some of the issues you may discuss include:
  • You paid all you owed before we sent the levy notice,
  • The IRS assessed the tax and sent the levy notice when you were in bankruptcy, and subject to the automatic stay during bankruptcy,
  • The IRS made a procedural error in an assessment,
  • The time to collect the tax (called the statute of limitations) expired before we sent the levy notice,
  • You did not have an opportunity to dispute the assessed liability,
  • You wish to discuss the collection options, or
  • You wish to make a spousal defense.

At the conclusion of your hearing, the Office of Appeals will issue a determination (most likely, it will not be in your favor). You will have 30 days after the determination date to bring a suit to contest the determination. Refer to IRS Publication 1160, Collection Appeal Rights, for more information. If your property is levied or seized, contact the IRS Agent who took the action. You also may ask a manager at the IRS to review your case. If the matter is still unresolved, the manager at the IRS can explain your rights to appeal to the Office of Appeals. If you go this route, we wish you much good luck.

Q. What if the IRS Levies my Wages, Social Security, Federal Payments, State Refunds or your Bank Account?

Once again, you could contact Flat Fee Tax Service and have the Wage Levy stopped and released in a matter of hours or you could "go it alone". 

If the IRS executes a levy on your wages, salary, Social Security or federal payments, the levy will end when:
  • The levy is released,
  • You pay your tax debt, or
  • The time expires for legally collecting the tax.

If the IRS executes a levy your bank account, your bank must hold funds you have on deposit, up to the amount you owe, for 21 days. This holding period allows time to resolve any issues about account ownership. After 21 days, the bank must send the money plus interest, if it applies, to the IRS. To discuss your case, call the IRS employee whose name is shown on the Notice of Levy.

For more more information on Bank Levies, you can visit our Website at:


Now there is more to an IRS Levy than what we can write in this space. After reading this, we don't expect you to be an "expert" at having a an IRS Levy stopped and released. The process of removing the Levy is only the 1st step. After that, we need to determine the best course of action to reduce your back tax liabilty. 

Flat Fee Tax Relief may be able to reduce your penalties and interest by a Penalty Abatement. You may be Currently Uncollectible. You may be qualified and eligible for an IRS Settlement of your entire tax debt through the Offer in Compromise program.

The IRS has recently made the Offer in Compromise program easier to obtain. Although the IRS is making it easier, you still must meet the criteria and follow the procedure meticulously. You can "go it alone", or you can "do it right".

IRS SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT - IRS Eases Eligibility for Offer in Compromise - Take Advantage While You Can

The best IRS help team at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. is exited to bring to you news from the IRS that it will be easier for a taxpayer to receive an IRS Settlement via  the Offer in Compromise program. The IRS has eased the eligibility requirements regarding Offer in Compromise settlements.


If you do not take advantage of this special opportunity, make no mistake about it, the IRS will file Tax Liens and the IRS will Levy your wages, your bank account and will seize your Social Security check.


DO YOU HAVE AN IRS INCOME TAX DEBT? 


There will never, ever be a better time for an IRS Settlement via the Offer in Compromise program.


The IRS has eased its Offer in Compromise program and has made it easier than ever to settle your back tax liability. Take advantage of this settlement opportunity while you can.






People struggling to pay an IRS tax bill or worried about that prospect as April approaches may have a slightly easier time thanks to changes announced by the IRS on Thursday.


The IRS said it’s easing the rules for when it places liens on taxpayers’ property, making it easier for small businesses to enroll in installment agreements, and broadening the Offer in Compromise program, which lets eligible taxpayers pay less than the full amount of their back tax debt.



“These changes will help give taxpayers a fresh start,” said Doug Shulman, the IRS commissioner, in a conference call with reporters. These changes “are especially appropriate as the American people and small businesses are climbing out of the worst recession in a generation.”


TAX LIENS ARE UP - PEOPLE WITH AN IRS DEBT ARE UP.

There were 1.1 million lien filings in fiscal year 2010, up from 684,000 in 2007, and lien filings rose 28% in the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 compared with the same period a year earlier.

“The IRS is addressing the symptoms and not the root causes of the problem,” she said. The IRS files liens automatically and “without sufficient analysis of the taxpayer’s financial situation,” she said.
“The IRS continues to establish lien filing policies without any evidence that automatic lien filings generate significant revenue as compared to the financial devastation they visit on taxpayers,” she said.
Now is the time for a fresh start. You don't have to suffer with an IRS tax debt. You can receive the tax relief help that you need.

“The IRS makes little effort to personally communicate with taxpayers after the issuance of the initial collection notices, a significant percentage of which are sent to addresses that the IRS knows are ‘undeliverable,’” Nina Olsen, the Tax Advocate said.
“Thus, millions of collection accounts sit silently in the queue for months and years, leading taxpayers to believe the IRS is ignoring the debt, which it is,” she said. “When the debt gets large enough, the IRS may assign the case to a collection employee, but by then, the debt is substantially larger by virtue of penalties and interest. By this point, for many taxpayers, these debts have become impossible to resolve.”

IRS Announces easier acceptance in the Offer in Compromise program (OIC). 

More taxpayers will have access to Offer in Compromise agreements, which allow taxpayers to pay less than the full amount of their bill. Under the new program, IRS Settlements via the Offer in Compromise program (OIC) will be available to people with a tax debt as high as $50,000, up from the current $25,000, and people with annual income of up to $100,000 will be eligible, up from $50,000 before.


“I’ve made a whole set of changes to the Offer in Compromise (OIC) program since I’ve been here to try to increase the participation rate, increase the acceptance rate, because it’s good for the tax system,” Doug Shulman, the IRS Commissioner said.
Also, the IRS will allow taxpayers to continue making their car payments, rather than counting that money as part of the taxpayer’s assets considered available for the unpaid tax debt.

“There are a variety of things, all aimed at increasing Offer in Compromise acceptance rates, making it a user-friendly thing to apply for,” he said. Still, Shulman said, “If people can pay their tax debt, we’re going to expect them to pay their tax debt.”

Olson, the taxpayer advocate, was more enthusiastic about these other changes.
“The IRS’s announcement today is a significant step in the right direction,” she said. “I am particularly pleased that the IRS plans to create more flexibility for small businesses to enter into installment agreements on their settlements and for taxpayers to enter into an IRS Settlement via the Offer in Compromise,” Olson said.
