Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
If you owe about $1M, the IRS considers this an extraordinary case, regardless of what the agent told you. If they were taking levies out of your SSDI and were not getting large amounts, as it costs them money to levy an account, then it usually means they are going to prepare to actually seize property from you to satisfy the debt and they are evaluating the equity in the property to determine if it is worth it for them to seize and if not they will resume the levy of the SSDI. The IRS does not simply forget about debts I am afraid.
I am also sure that owing this much you should have tried to negotiate a payoff for them to take less. If you have not done so and could do so by even liquidating some assets, this could be a good idea for you, because many times on this size debt they will take as little as 25%-33% as a settlement.
However, based on them stopping levy, in most all cases that means they are evaluating your case and conducting an internal audit and review to determine whether or not a property seizure would be in their best interests based on your equity in the property.
