Answer When a taxpayer owes back taxes or penalties the IRS always contacts them in written form. There will be a cover letter on official IRS stationery and additional… information such as forms that can be used for disputing the claim, requesting a payment schedule and so forth. They may also call you.
No. Georgia is not a community property state, therefore you cannot be held liable. However, any assets that you hold jointly with your husband may be subject to IRS enf…orcement actions.
Answer I don't believe so. They will make sure they get paid by garnishing your wages though. Hope this helps a little. Answer The IRS can issue a Notice of… Levy to your bank. It doesn't "freeze" your bank accounts, per se. What it does is require the bank to turn over any money that is in your bank account at the moment the Notice of Levy is received. Any money you deposit after the Notice of Levy is received remains yours, the IRS only gets what was there when the bank got the notice. Banks are required to hold that money aside for 21 days, and then turn it over to the IRS. This means that you have a 21 day window to convince the IRS to release the levy, and if you can get them to do that the bank will return the money to your account. After the 21st day the bank sends the money to the IRS -- at that point it is almost impossible to get your money back, so act quickly!
Usually if you owe back taxes, IRS will send you a letter to notify you that you owe IRS money. However, if you are not sure, try to call IRS at 1-800-829-1040. Also you can g…o and visit an IRS local office (if they get one in your city.) For more information, check the related links below.

The interest rate charged by the IRS is based on the Federal Short-Term Rate, which is set by the Federal Reserve. The interest rate changes quarterly. It is currently 6…% for individuals and 8% for corporations. Keep in mind that the IRS also charges penalties, and the penalties accrue interest as well. Because of this, most people will compare a tax liability as having an "effective interest rate" of 12-15%.
I think that depends on how much you own ( over 10,000) and if they actively have a case against you. Either way pay them, they will never leave you alone and the …compounded interest will end up being more than the principal.
It is always a good idea to try to understand as much as possible about the issue and the cause of the liability. You could owe for a return that was filed on your behalf, thi…s is known as a Substitute for Return. If that is the case, it may be in your best interest to file your own return to replace the SFR. Now, if you owe the IRS, the bottomline is that you have 4 options (I don't consider ignoring them an option): 1_ You can pay the liability in full by mailing them a check. Do however make sure that the amount is being applied correctly to the years in question. 2_ Enter an installment agreement to pay the liability over time, just like a car payment the interest and penalties will continue to accrue until either the balance is paid in full or the Statute of limitations expires. There are different types of installment agreements, they can be streamline, or fully negotiated depending on your financial situation and the amount of the debt. 3_ There is a program called currently not collectible that can be negotiated with the IRS, this program is for taxpayers that have not an ability to pay on a monthly basis. It is a fully negotiated agreement where you have to prove that you do not have the ability to pay. 4_ Finally there is the Offer in Compromise programs, where you offer the IRS an amount and if they accept then they write off the balance on your account. Regardless of what many unethical companies would have you believe on late night TV, this program is very seldom a good option for most taxpayers. Having said that, it is a legitimate program that many taxpayers can benefit from if they qualify. There is a small print that needs to be taken into consideration along with a tax professional that deals with this type of issue on a daily basis. Hope this helps.

Up tot he full amount of any payment you receive from the Gov't. Law now is the Gov't won't pay people (or Cos) who owe them money. Sort of makes sense.
Yes. Do you think the IRS should just presume that everybody who doesn't file doesn't owe any taxes? 26USC6012 requires anyone having more than a certain amount of income …to file a tax return. 26USC7203 makes willful failure to file a return a crime punishable by up to a year in jail and/or a $25,000 fine. Neither of these laws carry any requirement that you owe money. It is extremely rare, but people have been successfully criminally prosecuted for failure to file even though they might owe no money. See Spies v. United States, 317 U.S. 492, 496 (1943); United States v. Wade, 585 F.2d 573, 574 (5th Cir. 1978). Is the typical guy whose only source of income is a W-2 on which he had way too much tax withheld going to get prosecuted? No. Maybe if he gets arrested for something else like drugs, a tax charge might be piled onto his case. Or if he sends threatening letters to the IRS commissioner, they might take revenge. But not typically. People who have never had any income other than a W-2 forget one fact: The IRS does not know whether you owe any money until you file your taxes. A lot of people have income from other sources that does not get reported on a W-2. They owe income tax on that, too. And the IRS does not know that you have dependents or have deductions or whatever unless you file a tax return. They need that statement, sworn under penalty of perjury, of your income, deductions, exemptions, credits, and so on to properly calculate whether you owe taxes. If you don't send it to them, they will make certain worst-case assumptions about you and could even pursue you for taxes you don't owe. And if you don't file, the statute of limitations never starts running. That mean that the IRS can hound you over whether you owed taxes forever. There are also certain elections that need to be made on or before the filing date. Failure to make these elections in a timely manner means you forfeit the opportunity. For example, you can take a return of your current year IRA contribution or recharacterize a contribution up until October 15 of the next year, but only if you file your return (or an extension) on time, even if you don't owe money. Now many people will point to the fact that the civil penalty (as opposed to the rare criminal penalty) for filing late is based on the amount of money you owe. If you don't owe any money, the penalty is $0. (Note: some states impose penalties that may not be based on the amount you owe.) They then extrapolate that to mean you are not required to file and nothing will happen if you don't. These people do not know the big picture. And I don't know how many times I've seen people say "I always get a refund" but this year they don't. And they don't realize it because they haven't filled out their taxes. Or they make a mistake on their taxes and the IRS catches them. They end up paying thousands of dollars in needless failure to file penalties because they didn't file on time.

Typically they can seize liquid assets if there are taxes owed.
Absolutely. If you owe any government agency they will put a lien on your tax refund and it will be taken and applied to your debt. After this you will receive a letter sh…owing the amount take and to whom it was sent. You probably will get a letter from the agency that you owe showing receipt of the funds and the balance still owed or if your account is cleared it will also show this. The IRS doesn't actually send out the money but it is done by another Department of Treasury Division.
