What is the statute of limitation on IRS debt?
Generally the statute of limitations for an IRS debt is 10 years from the date the tax liability was assessed. There are several things that can extend the statute of limitations however. Filing bankruptcy will extend the statute by the amount of time the taxpayer is in bankruptcy if the bankruptcy does not completely eliminate the tax liability. Submitting an Offer In Compromise will extend the statute as well. There are many other factors that affect the statute of limitations. If you have a question about your collection statute in relation to your tax liability, some experts offer a free tax consultation. Knowing when your collection statute expires can prove to be very valuable information for a variety of reasons.

It depends on the type of agreement (oral or written) and the jurisdiction. It could be anything from 2 years to 15.
It will depend on how the debt is documented. Written contracts and promissory notes have the longest times. Oral contracts tend to be shorter. Every state sets their own limi…ts and they range from a couple of years to 15 years.
Statute of Limitations for what?. Statute of Limitations for assessing additional taxes (audit) is generally 3 years from the date the original return was filed.. Statute of… limitations for collecting a debt is generally 10 years from the date the tax was originally assessed.. There are many factors that can toll (pause) the running of the statute of limitations, so it may actually end up being longer than this.
The statute of limitations on a debt limits the amount of time thata creditor has to collect a debt. In Texas, the statute oflimitations on a debt is 4 years.
The IRS rules are the same for anyplace in the US...Ohio being one of them. Yes, their is something called the "Statute of Limitations" or SOL, where the time for assessmen…t and collection of taxes are restricted. However many things effect how the period for assessment (generally 7 years, but different on several types of tax or circumstances) is determind. For example, it starts to run from the time a return is filed ( and even then, really from the date it is due or extended to, if filed early ) . So if you didn't file what qualifies as a return, they remain assessable for forever the SOl never starts running). The way the time is counted has all types of things that must be considered...the sending of many notices "tolls" (meaning stops the clock from running) for periods. Assessment is different than collection. The amount (as a percentage) of the underpayment can change things yet again. So, certainly it is a worthy aspect to follow...as while the IRS computers are decent about keeping track and generally know if the period is open, they have been wrong. (But understand, that letter they sent 3 years ago to your old but last known address, received or not, or that you forgot about, they didn't...and it tolled the SOL). Obviously, even the way the objection or claim of Statute barred assessment is handled is important, and can lead to other problems. I recommend finding someone with the designation E.A. - which means "enrolled agent" to handle this for you. (Look under tax consultants in the phone book). They are not CPA, who have a more pure accounting view, but rather frequently ex IRS agents...have the right to represent you and are really very savy with the process and getting to a result in situations like this.
