Asking about 10 year SOL trigger action?

Reply Sat 28 Apr, 2012 01:36 pm
I'm close to the 10 year Statute of Limitations for the IRS to collect past taxes from me, but it got extended at one point when I was attempting to enter into an Offer in Compromise (which was rejected by them). So I'm not sure when the 10 years is up. Will contacting them to ask about it alert them to the fact that it's almost up, and perhaps trigger some action by them to collect it? I don't know that there's any way that they can, anyway, and they sent me updates on how much I owe as recently as a few months ago. But still would rather not alert them to that 10 year SOL date. Thanks!

I've no experience in that particular action, but kind of assume it is a computerized process and those computers don't forget much. I would say you've got nothing to lose. Again, that is a guess.

On the other hand, my limited understanding of statutes of limitation is that they apply to initiating an action. If a judgement has already been given, sol just might not apply. If that's the case, you're pretty much sitting around watching interest add up.
