IRS Collection Procedure for Social Security Disability (SSDI) Recipient -- Stop the IRS

THE IRS
SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY
(SSDI)
and
YOU



Social Security Benefits Eligible for the Federal Payment Levy Program (FPLP)

The IRS will Levy your Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits.Through the Federal Payment Levy Program (FPLP), Social Security benefit payments outlined in Title II of the Social Security Act, Federal Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance Benefits, are subject to the 15-percent levy, to pay your delinquent tax debt.

What the IRS Will Not Levy

However, Social Security benefit payments, such as lump sum death benefits and benefits paid to children, are not included in the Federal Payment Levy program (FPLP). Additionally, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments, under Title XVI, and payments with partial withholding to repay a debt owed to Social Security are not levied through the FPLP. Beginning February 2011, the FPLP may exclude certain delinquent taxpayers who receive social security payments if their income falls at or below certain established levels, based on the Department of Health and Human Services poverty guidelines.


What is Required Before the IRS Seizes your Social Security Check

Before your Social Security or Disability (SSDI) benefits are included in the FPLP, the IRS will send you a final notice of their intent to levy, with appeal rights, if one has not already been issued. If the IRS has not heard from you, or if you have already received this notice, the IRS will send you an additional collection notice CP-91 or CP-298, Final Notice Before Levy on Social Security Benefits, explaining that your Social Security benefits may be levied.



What You Need to Know About the CP-91 or CP-298 IRS Notice


The IRS assessed the back tax debt and sent you a Notice and Demand for Payment
  • You neglected or refused to pay your tax debt; and
  • The IRS sent you a Final Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to A Hearing (the CP-91 or CP-298) at least 30 days before the levy. The IRS could give you this notice in person, leave it at your home or your usual place of business, or send it to your last known address by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested. Please note: if we levy your state tax refund, you may receive a Notice of Levy on Your State Tax Refund, Notice of Your Right to Hearing after the Levy.
The Federal Payment Levy Program Process

The IRS, in conjunction with the Department of the Treasury, Financial Management Service (FMS), started the Federal Payment Levy Program (FPLP) which is authorized by Internal Revenue Code Section 6331 (h), as prescribed by the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 Section 1024. Through the Federal Payment Levy Program, the IRS can collect your overdue taxes through a continuous levy on certain federal payments disbursed by FMS.

As part of Federal Payment LevyPprogram, a file of delinquent accounts is transmitted to FMS to be matched against pending federal payments you are due. When a match is found, we send you a Final Notice - Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to a Hearing (CP-90 or CP-297), if another Final Notice (CP-91 or CP-298) has not already been issued.

IT'S AS SIMPLE AS MATCHING YOU UP IN THE COMPUTER

YOU DON'T NEED TO SUFFER


YOU HAVE RIGHTS

BE PRO-ACTIVE


This is What You Can Do


(You may be declared Currently not Collectible) 

When you, the taxpayer, are unable to make installment payments on your tax debt and can prove that enforcement of an IRS Wage Levy/IRS Garnishment would create significant undue economic hardship by depriving you, the taxpayer, of basic living necessities the IRS, as well as some States, will classify you as Currently not Collectible (currently uncollectible) and grant hardship status to suspend collection activity.

Should the IRS consider you "currently not collectible", this status will usually be for a period of 18 months to 2 years. At the end of the Currently not Collectible (currently uncollectible) period, you, the taxpayer, will need to show the IRS that your economic situation has not changed. As long as you enjoy this status with the IRS, you will not be expected to pay any of your IRS back tax debt. Your statutory period (IRS Statute of Limitations) does not freeze or stop. The Statute continues to decrease as usual.

WHAT ELSE CAN YOU DO?


File an Offer in Compromise and Settle with the IRS

An Offer in Compromise (OIC) is an agreement between a taxpayer and the Internal Revenue Service that settles the taxpayer’s tax liabilities for less than the full amount owed.

What is an Offer in Compromise Based On 


An Offer in Compromise (OIC) is based on a formula that takes into account your Present Income, your Assets (or lack thereof), your Future Income and your Allowable Expenses. When you are on a fixed Income such as Social Security or Social Security Disability (SSDI), you are more than likely qualified and eligible for an IRS settlement through the Offer in Compromise program. If you have a job where your wages will not be fluctuating much in the coming years, you are qualified and eligible for an Offer in Compromise.


THE IRS HAS EASED THE ELIGIBILITY TO SETTLE

The IRS Announced the Easing of the Offer in Compromise Program:

“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.

“These changes to the Offer in Compromise program 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.”

“There are a variety of things, all aimed at increasing acceptance rates for an Offer in Compromise, making it a user-friendly thing to apply for,” Shulman said.

Consider an Offer in Compromise

An IRS settlement through the Offer in Compromise (OIC) is an agreement between a taxpayer and the Internal Revenue Service that settles the taxpayer’s tax liabilities for less than the full amount owed. Absent special circumstances, an Offer in Compromise will not be accepted if the IRS believes that the liability can be paid in full as a lump sum or through an installment agreement.

3 Types of Offer in Compromise

1. Doubt as to Collectibility - Doubt exists that the taxpayer could ever pay the full amount of tax liability owed within the remainder of the statutory period for collection.

2. Doubt as to Liability - A legitimate doubt exists that the assessed tax liability is correct. Possible reasons to submit a doubt as to liability offer include: (1) the examiner made a mistake interpreting the law, (2) the examiner failed to consider the taxpayer’s evidence or (3) the taxpayer has new evidence.

3. Effective Tax Administration - There is no doubt that the tax is correct and there is potential to collect the full amount of the tax owed, but an exceptional circumstance exists that would allow the IRS to consider an Offer in Compromise (OIC). To be eligible for compromise on this basis, a taxpayer must demonstrate that the collection of the tax would create an economic hardship or would be unfair and inequitable.

IRS Levy -- Social Security -- Notices CP-90 and CP-297 -- What to Do

IRS LEVY
on
your
SOCIAL SECURITY
SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY (SSDI)

IRS Notice CP-90 / CP-297 

This IRS notice (CP-90 or CP-297) is telling you that the IRS intends to issue a levy against any federal payments due you, such as contractor/vendor payments, OPM retirement benefits, SSA benefits, salary, or employee travel advances or reimbursements because you still have a balance due on your tax account. Property, or rights to property, such as real estate, automobiles, business assets, bank accounts, wages, commissions, and other income are also subject to levy. It is also telling you that the IRS may also file a Federal Tax Lien, if the IRS has not already done so.





What You Need to Do

You can pay the amount in full that is shown on the Notice or you can enter into an Installment Agreement. Before you enter into any Installment Agreement with the IRS, you should look into an IRS settlement through the Offer in Comrpomise program.


How Much time do You Have

You have 30 days from the date of this notice (CP-90 or CP-297) to contact the IRS before the IRS issues a levy. Or, you can contact Flat Fee Tax Relief and start the process to stop the IRS and settle your back tax debt.


What Happens if You Do Nothing

If you do nothing, the IRS has several options available that IRS will use to collect the money. One option is to issue a levy against your federal payments. That means that the IRS will take a minimum of 15% of your Social Security or Social Security Disability (SSDI). Another option is to file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien. The tax lien gives the IRS a legal claim to your property as security or payment for your back tax debt.

IRS Authority to Levy Your Social Security 

In July 2000, the IRS, in conjunction with the Department of the Treasury, Financial Management Service (FMS), started the Federal Payment Levy Program (FPLP) which is authorized by Internal Revenue Code Section 6331 (h), as prescribed by the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 Section 1024. Through this program, the IRS can collect your overdue taxes through a continuous levy on certain federal payments disbursed by FMS. The following is a list of federal payments that can be levied by the IRS through the FPLP:

  • federal employee retirement annuities,
  • federal payments made to you as a contractor/vendor doing business with the government (including Defense contracts),
  • federal employee travel advances or reimbursements,
  • certain Social Security benefits paid to you,
  • some federal salaries, and
  • Medicare provider and supplier payments.
As part of this program, a file of delinquent accounts is transmitted to FMS to be matched against pending federal payments you are due. When a match is found, the IRS will send you a Final Notice- Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to a Hearing (CP-90 or CP-297), if another Final Notice has not already been issued.
