IRS Collection Letters are Coming. But Will They Levy?


In early 2024, it is clear that the IRS has accelerated collection activity. Aggressive IRS letters are being issued like the ones pictured here. Multiple year non-filers, particularly higher income people, are being targeted by IRS Officers to get into compliance. Revenue Officers continue to levy individuals and businesses that blow them off. But if you are getting Cp504 letters, will they follow thru with levies or garnishments?

Cp504 letters, historically, have been the final letter individuals would get before Automated Collection Systems (ACS) would issue wage or bank levies.

Final Balance Reminder

But in our analysis/close view, the verdict is still out - whether ACS will actually follow thru on levies? Since 2016, they have been sporadic at enforcing the levies.

Either way, how can you avoid or manage this risk?
