IRS Collections and Currently Not Collectible Status

Serving Clients Throughout the Twin Cities Metro Area and Western Wisconsin

After determining that a taxpayer has a substantial tax liability, the IRS may investigate the person's financial resources to determine whether the arrears are collectible. The investigation will include examining bank accounts, financial assets, household expenses and all sources of income. If the IRS determines that a lien or an installment agreement is not feasible because of the taxpayer's lack of available assets, the liability may be assigned a status of Currently Not Collectible.

If you have received an official notice that your tax liability has been assigned as not collectible, it is important to understand that you are not being relieved of your liability. It just means that the IRS will continue to review your assets and income until it feels that collections actions are appropriate. This often occurs years after the tax year in which the liability was recognized.
