If you find yourself owing back taxes to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) but are completely unable to satisfy this tax debt, you may be eligible to request that the IRS declare you Currently Not Collectible. This means that the IRS recognizes that you possess no ability whatsoever to satisfy any of your outstanding tax debts. However, to do so, the IRS will have to receive compelling and convincing evidence that you truly have no means of paying off these outstanding debts.

You can submit your claim to get IRS Currently Not Collectible status by submitting Form 433-F to the IRS. A qualified IRS tax attorney will be able to help you determine if you qualify for Currently Not Collectible status, and help as well in filing the requisite forms. Once you have been declared Currently Not Collectible, the IRS is required by law to cease all collection activities. For example, if the IRS has been garnishing your weekly salary, this must end at once. The IRS is required to send an annual statement to you, which states the amount of tax debt which you still owe to them. This is a statement, not a bill.
During this time, the 10 year statute of limitations on tax debt collection is still in full effect. If the IRS cannot collect the amount within this period, then the debt will expire. You need an experienced, and highly qualified Tax Attorney to ensure the IRS understands your financial situation and grants you “CNC” status.
