How To Stop a Tax Levy

Updated: Jun 21, 2021

IRS Collections Division has resumed normal operations. IRS Collections is responsible for collecting back taxes and collecting un-filed tax returns. Much of the enforcement effort by IRS Collections had been on hold during the pandemic. IRS is again actively working to collect on tax debts from 2019 and 2020. See the communication below that was just released by the IRS.

Balance due Notices are generally automatically sent to taxpayers after the tax filing deadline to those the IRS believes has a tax bill. Beginning June 15, 2021, the IRS expects to begin following up with taxpayers who failed to respond to prior notices. Taxpayers (some with 2020 and/or 2019 tax liabilities) will be notified that they have 30 days (45 if out of the country) to respond or pay their tax bills. Taxpayers who fail to respond to these additional letters could be subject to levies or Notice of Federal Tax Lien filings beginning Aug. 15, 2021
