IRS Suspends Balance Due Notices

The Internal Revenue Service has suspended the mailing of balance due and unfiled tax return notices.  These were among more than a dozen letters the IRS added to its list of suspended notices.

The agency noted it entered the 2022 filing season with several million original and amended returns that have not been processed because of issues stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. The IRS said it will assess the inventory of prior-year returns to determine when resuming the sending of notices is appropriate.

Some taxpayers and tax professionals may still receive notices over the next few weeks, but they do not need to respond to them. The IRS cannot stop all notices as many are legally required to be issued within a certain timeframe.

Also suspended in the sending of automated collection notices normally issued when a taxpayer owes additional tax, and the IRS has no record of a taxpayer filing a tax return.

The suspended notices include,tCP80,  Unfiled Tax Return; CP59 and CP 759 (Spanish), Unfiled Tax Return(s)-1st Notice; CP516 and CP616 (Spanish), Unfiled Tax Returns–2nd Notice; CP518 and CP618 (Spanish), Final Notice–Return Delinquency’ CP501, Balance Due–1st Notice; CP503, Balance Due–2nd Notice; CP504 Final Balance Due Notice–3rd Notice, Intent to Levy; 2802C, Withholding Compliance letter; CP259 and CP959 (Spanish), Return Delinquency; and CP518 and CP618 (Spanish), Final Notice­­—Return Delinquency.
