Collection Statute Expiration Date

Collection Statute Expiration Date

The Internal Revenue Service has a statute of limitations on the timeframe they can collect taxpayers’ debts. However, human error has caused some collection statute expiration dates to be inaccurately calculated. At Tax Defense Partners, we can resolve this tax problem with exceptional ease.

Understanding Collection Statute Expiration Dates

A collection statute expiration date refers to the legal timeframe the IRS must collect a tax balance. The CSED often ends the Government’s right to further pursue tax liability, i.e. 10 years from the tax assessment date. For example, you waited until 2015 to file a return for 2013. The tax will be assessed in 2015 and the 10-year period begins to run on the same year. The expiration date is 2025.

In some cases, the CSED needs to be recalculated. However, IRS agents do not always recalculate them accurately. The National Taxpayer Advocate reports that miscalculated CSEDs are one of the most serious tax problems experienced by individual and business taxpayers.

If a CSED is miscalculated beyond the actual CSED, the mistake may result in unlawful collection activity, which violates the taxpayer’s rights.

Frequently Asked Questions About Collection Statute Expiration Dates

What happens if my CSED has not elapsed?

If the expiration date is getting close, it is recommended that you put together a plan that protects you from aggressive collection action. You may need a tax professional to negotiate a monthly payment plan with the IRS. Alternatively, you can place your account into “Currently Not Collectible”.

What happens if my CSED has lapsed?

Congratulations! All that remains is to clean up the mess that your previous tax problem has left in your life. You may need to apply for a TC 608 credit to cancel out the debt. Next, you should file a Release of Federal Tax Lien to kickstart the process of repairing your credit.

Does the IRS inform taxpayers about elapsed CSEDs?

No, the IRS is not required by law to notify taxpayers that a debt has expired. As they are also no longer allowed to chase after payment, you will simply stop hearing from them.
