W/o considering the waiver----just the 10 yr statute. Once the 10 yrs from the assessment date has passed --to the exact day---does the statute 100% officially pass / done / over--remember we are not talking about a waiver----or is there any other 'administrative' time added on before it is officially closed. In the past I had been told by an attorney that there was either an additional 30 or 60 days---I just do not remember what they told me.
When you say they can 'request' a waiver----who are they requesting it form / to?remember what that was.
That is the gist of my question.
BTW-you would think that the IRS would have the responsibility to give you this info-----forget it---I was hung up on twice as they claimed they had no idea what I was talking about. Tried FOIA to---strangely omitted.
How else would I know I was free & clear?
Is there a tel # / specific dept of the IRS I can go to for this info?
Also---are you saying that if the statute runs out and the IRS had not gotten a waiver and their had been a lien on my property that the lien would 'survive?' It would continue to be in place? That would be strange sine the debt was no longer collectable.
I am not requesting legal advice from the IRS----I am just looking for where the buck stops in getting the CSED.
Isn't having a lien an attempt to collect a debt? The purpose is to seize any equity in the property after the 1st lien holder---the bank gets paid.
Bankruptcy wipes put tax debt?
I am sorry-but what are the forms I can fill out to request that the lien be removed? Who am I submitting that to---the IRS? If so---what is their motive in removing it?
Ok----lastly as I don't want to drag this out any longer---
Re: the lien---it has to be an attempt to colllect a debt. By having it still attached to the property effectively by nature / definition they are saying we want to get paid. We are still wanting to collect the debt. If they weren't still trying they would not be there.
To say they are not does not make sense.
Very lastly----the forms to remove the lien---those are sent to the IRS? Why would they want to remove it?
Thanks for your answers---if I have any other questions I will pursue them with another submitted question.
I did ask what would be their motivation to remove it.
You said 'they do not have to remove it unless a. they get paid or b.- you request they remove it from you.' Are you saying they have to remove it is I ask them to?
To be honest with you your response about the owning a piece of the equity is quite convoluted. There is no doubt that they are attempting to collect the debt---so therefore they took an action---an attempt that was only related to a debt---there was no other reason to take that action-but to collect the debt.
So when the statute expires that action / attempt should become null and void.
