Currently Not Collectible
The tax term "currently not collectable" refers to the fact that a taxpayer simply does not have the ability to pay his or her taxes - possibly for a variety of reasons. Maybe a taxpayer or family member has suffered a serious illness; or the taxpayer has lost their job, or maybe the taxpayer has very little or nothing in the way of assets or property for the IRS to pursue.
See how tax relief can help you. Answer a few, simple questions to get a free tax relief consultation - at no cost to you.
Know Your Legal Rights and Options
Regardless of the reason, a "currently not collectable" status is a perfectly legal status for the taxpayer to be granted by the IRS. If the IRS does declare a taxpayer currently not collectable, the IRS must cease all collection actions, including garnishments and levies.
An annual statement will then be sent to the taxpayer for taxes still owed, but the statement is just a matter of record, not a tax bill.
10 Year Statute of Limitations
While the tax debt remains in "currently not collectable" status, the legal ten-year statute of limitations still applies. If the IRS cannot collect the tax within the 10-year statutory period, the tax debts will have expired.

Before Contacting the IRS, Know Your Settlement Options
IMPORTANT: Why is it so important to get an independent review of your legal tax relief options? When you call the IRS frontline collectors directly, you are typically contacting an IRS tax collector whose job is to collect information from you in order to collect on your debt. In fairness, that is their job. However, you may be facing a personal or business hardship that needs to be taken into full consideration. It's important to be apprised in advance of your legal tax relief options.
When you call the Tax Relief Helpline, you will be speaking with a BBB-A-Rated tax resolution specialist whose job it is to listen to you, understand your current situation and determine if existing tax code can be applied to help resolve your IRS debt as quickly and reasonably as possible, in a way that allows you to move on with your life and not only remove stress but quite possibly, save you a substantial amount of money as well!
"What we do is we do a very good job of helping them (taxpayers) see what their rights are according to the law and also help them to see a light at the end of the tunnel even though that the IRS can be a threatening organization, there are ways that taxpayers can be protected and get things solved with the help of experts."
