Tax Collection Problems

The process of making an individual pay for past taxes may be called tax collection. People may sometimes face problems during the collection process. They may not know whom to contact and how to address these problems. Given below are some important questions regarding tax collection that have been answered by the Experts.

Is there a statute of limitations on collection of state tax debts?

There is no statute of limitations on collection of state tax debts. They may exist till they are paid off by the person who owes them or till the individual dies.

What can an individual do if a state agency does not follow the relevant statutes while collecting tax?

If a state agency does not follow the relevant statutes while collecting taxes from an individual, he/she may file a petition for a Writ of Mandamus in court against the agency.

What can an individual do if they receive a tax collection order for a period of time that they did not live in the particular state?

If an individual is asked to pay tax for a period of time that when he/she did not live in a particular state, the individual may have to call the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and inform them that he/she did not live there during the period for which tax is being charged. The collection order may be withdrawn if the individual is able to give sufficient proof that he/she was not a resident of that state.

What is the statute of limitations on tax owed to the IRS?

The statute of limitations on the collection of tax owed to the IRS is 10 years.

Would it be illegal if an individual does not file his/her tax return?

Failure to file one’s tax returns will be considered illegal and the individual can be prosecuted for tax evasion.

How can an individual stop the IRS from collecting past tax from him/her?

In order to stop the IRS from collecting past taxes from him/her, an individual may file a request in court for a collection due process or an equivalent hearing. The individual may have to fill up the form 12153 and request for a collection due process at the local IRS office.

What is the statute of limitations on the collection of property taxes in the state of Texas?

The statute of limitations on the collection of property taxes in the state of Texas is 20 years. In most situations, if the property is owned by a home ruled municipality with a population of at least 3.3 million for a period of 8 years, then the statute of limitations may be 10 years.

Who would be liable for a tax debt owed by an LLC company?

In most of the situations, all the members of the company may be liable towards any tax dept that the company may owe. Only one person may not be held responsible for it. If only one individual is being contacted by the collection agency, he/she may provide the agency with the names and contact details of the other members of the company.

Tax collection can be a difficult process to deal with. You need to be aware of the different problems that you may face and how you can avoid them if you have been given a collection order. You may speak to an Expert and get answers to all your questions and get all your doubts about tax collection cleared.

Recent Tax Collection Questions

  • I got 1099-misc and 1099-k. This one contractor supply both

    I got 1099-misc and 1099-k. This one contractor supply both 1099-misc and 1099-k for making payment to me. It appears as double payment. I told the contractor that he should not be using 1099-misc if he was paying me through paypal which use 1099-k. 1099-k is basically use for cash and checks only and 1099-k is use and supply by debit/credit/paypal. But I have not heard back him yet. I read it on many blogs about this, is this correct that they should be using one or the other?
    In the mean time, should I deduct this double payment on line 2, returns and allowances on schedule C?
  • I have approx. $28k in federal taxes that I owe from 2008.

    I have approx. $28k in federal taxes that I owe from 2008. Due to my financial hardship, I have been paying IRS $50 per month which they never questioned and withdrew from my account on a regular basis. Just over a month ago, IRS sent a letter and put Levy on my account and withdrew $36 that I had in my account at the time.

    My question is, how often can IRS Levy my account and are they required to send notice before Levy or randomly Levy my account. Since their Levy, I have not touched my account and have fear of putting any money in my account
