How Long Does A Status Of “Currently Not Collectible” Last?

“Currently Not Collectible” (“CNC”) status exists when the IRS categorizes a taxpayer’s account as uncollectible. This status may occur when the ten-year statute of limitations for collecting a tax debt expires or the IRS is unable to locate a taxpayer. It may also occur if a taxpayer maintains that he or she cannot make monthly payments to repay tax debt because such payment is an economic hardship.

What Is An IRS Levy?

A tax or IRS levy is an administrative action by the IRS under its statutory authority to legally seize property to satisfy a tax debt. This is in contrast to a lien which is a legal claim against property to secure payment of the tax debt, while a levy actually takes the property to satisfy the tax liability. Obviously, an IRS levy is a frightening proposition to most, if not all, taxpayers.
