Currently Not Collectible Status

currently not collectibleIf you owe the IRS money they will use any means possible to collect the tax debt. If a taxpayer truly doesn't have the ability to pay their taxes due to financial hardship they can apply for Currently Not Collectible Status. This special status protects people suffering of economic hardship from collection strategies like levies and wage garnishments. When the IRS agrees to consider your debt Currently Not Collectible this means that they will halt all attempts to collect a tax debt for a time, but it does not mean they've forgiven the debt. The penalties and interest associated with your tax debt will continue to mount up during this time period. The IRS will also review your situation periodically and will revoke this status if your circumstances have changed.
