There is a statute of limitations on assessing income taxes, but once the taxes have been assessed there is no statute of limitations on collecting them.

Each state will have some different statute of limitations. You can get in contact with a tax professional in your area to find out these limitations.

The statue of limitations in California is the later of four years after the return was filed or the due date of the return. If you have filed the return, then after four years, no additional taxes can be assessed, but no additional refunds can be claimed either.

There is a three statute of limitation for the state and the localities in Ohio. They can not press collections, nor can they refund money are the statute of limitations has passed. If money was paid to the wrong locality and it is discovered at the statute of limitations has passed, the correct city must allow a credit for the amount paid to the original locality.

For the state of Arizona it is 4 years, but since it is based on Federal Taxable income, one must complete that first even though Federal statute of limitations is only 3 years to file.

Same as the statute of limitations on any other income tax. For example, if it is a U.S. federal income tax, and a return is required but not filed, then the statute of limitations doesn't start until the return is filed, and then runs for three years, assuming the taxpayer does not leave the US during that time.

According to State Farm's website, there is no statute of limitations on hospital claims. In most cases, State Farm pays any hospital claims that are due at the time of the accident.

There is no statute of limitation for unpaid taxes anywhere. It is a civil debt and not necessarily a criminal charge which is when you sometimes see statute of limitations. If it came to criminal charges, it would show as an ongoing conspiracy by not paying the amount due for the period of time.

Depends on the type of tax, but in income taxes, anyplace...the Statute of Limitations for assesment and Collection (normally 3 - 4 years) ONLY STARTS running when a return has been filed. If you don't file, you remain perpetually liable.

Generally, the statute of limitations on assessment of a tax deficiency is three years from the date a tax return was due UNLESS the deficiency was substantial, meaning a return failed to include 25% or more of the gross income it should have, in which case the statute of limitations extends to six years. And there's no statute of limitations on a taxpayer who was required to file a return and failed to do so.

Federal taxes have up to 5 years. The state may have a different limitation.

Yes, as long as you report your income weekly. They will then adjust your benefits accordingly.

In the US, unfortunately there is no statute of limitations on the collections of guaranteed student loans. If not paid back, the government can garnish wages, keep tax returns, and will eventually garnish social security income. If you need help with your defaulted student loans, click on the link at the bottom of this text box.

For a time, but life is long and there's no statute of limitations on collection, but this is a common claim in this economy where the majority of men are out of work.

For non-criminal statue of limitations it is typically 3 years, but with certain exceptions can go to six years.To clarify:3 Years: The IRS has 3 years from the date that you file a return to audit the return and make changes.6 Years: If you under-report income by 25% there is a six year statute of limitation for assessment instead of 3.No Statute of Limitations: if there is a "willful attempt to evade or defeat tax", there is no statute of limitations for assessment. The IRS can audit your return at anytime if they can prove fraud or evasion.The ten year statute of limitations that is referenced above is for the collection of tax. Once tax has been assessed (either through the filing of a return or through an audit of a return within the assessment statute of limitation timeframes) the IRS has ten years to collect the tax from you.

If you don't pay your bills and don't file bankruptcy, there are 3 possibilities for every creditor: 1- they sue you and get a judgment good for 10 or 20 years. or 2- they forgive the debt, creating income for you and send you a 1099; you will owe income taxes on the forgiven amount; or 3- they do nothing for the statute of limitations period and then cannot collect. Do not be fooled by a creditor telling you it has "written off" the debt. That is to allow them to claim a loss against income and has nothing to do with collecting the debt.

AnswerThe CSED is not 6 years, but 10 years for the feds to collect on the taxes owed. There is no CSED date on state taxes. States have the right to levy any income sources and assets if need be.There is for Federal taxes, 6 years, but it varies from state to state in regards to state taxes and community taxes.

No, if a valid child support order was in place, all arrearages must be paid.The obligated parent can have his or her wages garnished and federal and/or state income tax refunds seized for such arrearages.If the order was signed before 1989 it's a 10 statute starting from when the last payment was delinquent. If ordered after 1989, it's a 10 year statute of limitations starting when the youngest child is emancipated.

For federal income taxes, it is generally three years from the date of filing any required return. If the required return was not filed, there is no statute of limitations and the required records must be kept forever. There is also no statute of limitations on fraudulent returns or willful attempt to evade taxes. (If a return is filed before the due date, the three year period begins on the due date.) Internal Revenue Code Section 6501(e)(1)(A) extends the normal three year period to six years "if the taxpayer omits from gross income an amount properly includible therein which is in excess of 25 percent of the amount of gross income stated in the return." So it would be prudent to keep your records for at least six years so you can defend yourself if the IRS asserts that you have understated your income by more than 25% and to keep them indefinitely if you are involved in anything that could be misconstrued as tax fraud. Note also that if you have carryforwards (such as a capital loss carryover) that affect future returns, you should keep the records that substantiate the carryover until such time as the SOL runs out on the future returns. Even though the IRS might not be able to collect back taxes on the previous returns, they can still disallow any carryovers on more recent returns. And also beware that if you live in a state that has an income tax, your state's statute of limitations may differ from the federal statute of limitations.

The statute of limitations for taxes in Indiana is 3 years after the tax was due or after the return was filed, whichever is later. So for instance if you have a tax return due April 15, 2005 and the return is filed February 1, 2005 the statue of limitations is April 15, 2008. If the return was filed on June 15, 2005 with the same due date, the statue of limitations would run out on June 15, 2008.
