Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
hi from just answer.
My first guess is it was a mistake. Error in typing in your social security or EIN, then adding assessment. Your question didn't add a lot of detail, so keep that in mind.
Secondly, it sounds like a trust fund assessment could have been made against you, then removed/reclassed when either someone else was found liable or the taxes were paid, removing the need for the assessment.
