IRS Not Filing Liens For All $10,000+ Tax Delinquencies

IRS Not Filing Liens For All $10,000+ Tax Delinquencies

According to Law360, the Internal Revenue Service did not file notice of federal tax liens against more than 1.5 million taxpayers with high-dollar delinquencies, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration said in a report published on September 25, 2023.

The cases, which occurred from July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022, involved individual and business taxpayers with a balance due greater than $10,000, according to the report. The IRS' federal watchdog also reported that the agency did not always properly provide taxpayers a notice of a federal tax lien or of their collection due process rights.

One Reason That This Is Important, Is That Tax
 Obligations, Without Federal Tax Liens, Are 

 Debt Which Is Dischargeable In Bankruptcy.

Additionally, the report noted that there were 1,214 cases of automated levies for the federal payment levy program that were issued during a taxpayer's 30-day period to elect a collection due process hearing, as well as 91 cases where levies were automatically issued during a taxpayer's pending appeal.

TIGTA made eight recommendations to the IRS, including ensuring that notices are properly updated to include correct information. The IRS agreed with seven of the eight recommendations, rejecting the implementation of codes allowing for review to determine the date of nonautomated levy program levies and seizures.
