If you’ve received a calling card from the IRS through the mail or on your door, you may be facing collection activity. IRS collection processes are launched for many reasons. An audit of an inaccurate return may have ended with additional taxes assessed to you, or you might not have met the deadline for filing a required return. Your financial position might have prohibited you from paying Uncle Sam your federal taxes in full. No matter the reason, IRS collections are generally instigated with a single – and obvious – goal in mind: to collect all outstanding taxes, penalties, and interest from you.
Don’t let receiving an IRS notice of due taxes intimidate you so much that you simply do nothing while hoping that the IRS’s demands for payment will disappear. Such procrastination in dealing with tax problems usually results in exponentially high penalties and interest, sometimes doubling the amount originally owed. The IRS can levy your wages and bank accounts, place federal tax liens on your property, and seize other assets, such as vehicles and equipment. In extreme cases, the IRS will pursue seizure of your home to clear your tax debt.
