In March 2020, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) paused tax collections and enforcement policies temporarily in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Rising unemployment rates had left millions of taxpayers struggling to pay their bills. However, with the country’s health climate back on the rise, the IRS announced that their automated lien and levy programs would resume administering notices starting July 15, 2021.
The agency began sending out balance due reminders to those who have yet to pay their federal tax liability in June. These notices allotted taxpayers 30 days to arrange to make payments through the IRS or 45 days for those who are out of the county.
If an individual cannot pay their balance and fails to contact the IRS to discuss an alternative agreement, they may receive a lien or levy as early as August 15, 2021. A lien allows the IRS to legally claim or seize a taxpayer’s property and income.
