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.

Does not matter the type of debt, in Delaware it is three (3) years from the last date of payment, not to be confused with the origination date. If your mortgage was opened in… 1990 and you never made any payment the SOL would have expired in 1993, however if you made our payments up until 2009, then its still within statue until 2012. Another point, would be if they foreclosed and obtained a judgment those are within statue for 10 years in Delaware, so you would be looking at 2020 to be free and clear.
That will depend on the type of debt you are talking about. Open ended accounts (credit cards) or oral agreements have a limit of 3 years. Promissory notes and Written agreeme…nts have up to 5 years.
The statute of limitations of unpaid debt is the time period that a creditor has to collect a debt. When the time period has passed, the creditor can no longer sue you for… the unpaid debt. The time is set in each state and can vary from three to 10 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 asse…ssment 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.
Answer There is no cut-and-dry answer to this question. Statute of limitations (SOL) is established by state law and varies according to account type. The SOL f…or a credit card may be set by the state in which the consumer resides, or may be set by the state's laws which govern the contract. Many credit card issuers write card holder agreements under laws which favor them, like South Dakota and North Carolina. There are also different statutes for written contracts, promissory notes and verbal agreements. If your aim is to find out the SOL which applies in a specific case, you would need to research the state and contract type.
The statute of limitiations for a debt in Illinois is 10 years. In 1998 the Statute was "ammended". Anything 1998 or later is only a debt for 10 years, then it expires. Check …the statutes in Illinois for the exact month in 1998. NOTE: The debt only expires if there have been no payments on the debt, or no attempts to collect the debt within 10 years. If it's important, get a good attorney for specifics.
