If you owe taxes to the IRS but are unable to meet the obligation due to financial constraints, you may qualify for Currently Non Collectible status. To qualify, you have to prove to the central tax authority that you have no disposable income and are barely able to meet reasonable living expenses. An IRS non-collectible status means that you are eligible to pay your outstanding tax dues at a later date when your financial situation has improved. Let us learn a bit more about non collectible status as a tax relief solution. Before you apply for CNC status, make sure that you have analyzed other options that can help you pay or avoid your taxes, for which you need the help of an experienced tax law attorney from the Law Offices of Nick Nemeth.

How it Works

After the IRS places your tax account into Currently Non Collectible status, it does not pursue any activities such as wage garnishment to collect the outstanding tax, except for a few exceptions. Your tax debt, however, still remains, and the IRS may charge penalties and interests on it. The IRS may also use your refunds and file a lien against your property, if an urgent need arises to settle your debts. That is why you must look for other options to settle your debts before requesting the IRS for a non collectible tax status.

Requesting Non Collectible Tax Status

Here is a four-step guide to requesting a non collectible tax status:

1. Prepare Documents

It goes without saying that before the IRS places your account under currently non collectible tax status, it needs to evaluate your financial condition. So the first step you need to take is to prepare all the required documents, including bank statements, credit card bills, and your income and other monthly living expenses.

2. Fill Required Forms

After you’ve gathered the financial data, you need to fill out either of these forms.

3. Make Sure the Step is Right

Before you submit the 433 forms and enable the IRS to discover whether or not you qualify for non collectible status, we recommend you to do your own discovery first. Calculate your net disposable income and monthly expenses to what you think the IRS may think is allowable for approving a non collectible status. You can use the Financial Analysis Handbook in the Internal Revenue Manual (5.15.1) or hire a tax law attorney for help.

4. Submit the Forms

The final step is to submit the required paperwork with the IRS. You can also call the IRS before submitting the forms. If you have doubts about how to proceed, hire a tax professional who can speak with the IRS on your behalf.

Duration of Current Non Collectible Status

How long a current non collectible status last differs from case to case. The duration usually depends on the taxpayer’s income. When IRS places a taxpayer’s account in Currently Non Collectible status, it assigns a closing code to it, which tells them when to review the case. Let’s suppose that John earns $25,000 every year, an amount barely enough to meet his basic monthly expenses. The IRS, after evaluating his financial condition, assigns a closing code of $31,000 to his tax account. The day he starts earning this amount, the IRS will review his case to check if he is making enough money to be able to pay his taxes.

I would like to thank Mr. Nick and his staff for the superb help that I received from them. My IRS problem was resolved quickly and efficiently. It took 2 visits to convince me that I was over my head. I thought that I could call the IRS, appeal my tax notices and settle on a payment plan on my own. After many phone calls to the IRS, waiting sometimes more than 4 hours with no resolution to speak of, it proved to be extremely difficult and stressful. Revisiting Mr. Nick was a huge wake up call. My account was reviewed, and a payment plan was established with the IRS within a week. I will be forever grateful to the staff who worked on my case and especially to Lorna who listened to me vent while going through this painful process.

I cannot say enough good things about Nick and his team. When I first met with Nick he was up front, honest, friendly and efficient. When I worked with one of his attorneys, Eric B, I was just as pleased. All of the staff there are nice and very helpful. I wish I hadn't waited so long to get help with my issue. Over 6yrs I tried getting through and getting anywhere with the IRS and hardly made any progress. I know this may not be the case for all, and even I thought it would take longer than it did, but 3mos and they had my situation straightened out. I still can't believe it. Thank you thank you THANK YOU for all that you did for me. This is a huge burden gone out of my life now thanks to you. If anyone needs help out there, I know you may not want to shell out more money to get their help but it may just save you in the long run.

During a time in which competent, professional service at a fair price seems to have disappeared, Mr. Nemeth and his team are a refreshing breath of fresh air.From my first phone call to the final settlement of our case with a non-responsive IRS, they under-promised, over-delivered and were in constant courteous contact to make sure we knew exactly what was happening and where we stood.I hope to never need their services again, but, should I receive another friendly letter from the IRS...I know who to call!
