What is Non-Collectible Status? Currently not Collectible Status
Having a taxpayer declared to be Currently not Collectible can have many positive outcomes. Being placed into Currently not Collectible status is a situation where the taxpayer can demonstrate that paying the IRS constitutes an “economic hardship.” To be placed in non-collectible status the monthly “IRS allowable expenses” must exceed monthly income on Form 433-A or 433-F.
It is important to understand and know what the IRS allows as an expense and how much the IRS allows for each expense. It is also important to understand that this is usually just a temporary solution. By “temporary” we mean that usually Currently not Collectible status runs for 18 to 24 months. The IRS can reassess the individual’s ability to pay at that time.
While in Currently not Collectible status, the time that the IRS has to collect continues to run. What does that mean? As an example, if someone owes a $60,000 tax debt and the IRS has 5 years left to collect the tax debt and furthermore you have been in Currently not Collectible status for 24 months, then only 36 months remains to collect. So, it is possible to run out the clock (Statute of Limitations) on the tax debt. This strategy can be very tricky to maneuver and it would be best to have an experienced tax professional handle this. Be aware, the IRS can take away Currently not Collectible status whenever they wish.
If the IRS has declared a taxpayer to be Currently not Collectible and you owe $10,000 or more, your best bet may be to submit a tax settlement. An Offer in Compromise (also referred to as the ‘Fresh Start Program) are the most advertised and least accepted IRS solution.
