If a taxpayer has an outstanding balance on their taxes, the IRS will send a bill demanding payment. Such outstanding balances may occur due to existing tax liabilities or as a result of an IRS audit, penalties, interest and fees based on current or past tax debt.
Typically, the IRS gives you an initial 30 days to respond to their notice. After that, a notice providing the taxpayer 10 days to respond is sent. Responding to the IRS in a timely manner is highly recommended as to avoid further collection tactics such as wage garnishment, property liens or account levies. Also, settling or negotiating outstanding balances immediately prevents additional penalties, interest and fees.
If a response is not received by the IRS within the allotted period of time, they will move into more aggressive collection attempts.
