Letter 75: Your Federal Tax Is Unpaid

Posted by Juda Gabaie | Jun 11, 2024 | 0 Comments

Getting a Letter 75 from the IRS can be overwhelming and a bit nerve-wracking—the IRS is asking for money and threatening to levy your property if it doesn't get it. There's no need to panic, however. If you act quickly, you can deal with an LT75 properly. Let's look more closely at what an LT75 means and how you should handle it.

What Does an LT75 Notice from the IRS Mean?

You may receive an LT75 when the IRS believes you haven't paid your taxes. Before the IRS sends an LT75, they usually send you other letters to attempt to collect unpaid taxes. If you get an LT75, it means that a levy is issued against you. You have 30 days from the date of the letter before the IRS starts collection on the levy.

The LT75 typically includes:

-         The total amount you owe, including interest and penalties

-         Actions you need to take

-         The deadline for submitting a payment or requesting an appeal

According to a sample copy of the LT75 published by the IRS, the agency has the right to levy the following property:

-         Wages

-         Real estate commissions

-         Other income

-         Bank accounts

-         Business assets

-         Personal assets (including your car and home)

-         Social Security benefits

What to Do If You Receive an LT75 Notice

The LT75 can be appealed, which may be your best course of action. However, you'll have to prepare your appeal quickly as you only have 30 days before the levy takes place. You'll need to fill out Form 12153 to request an appeal hearing.

If you can't pay the entire amount right away, you may be able to set up an installment agreement with the IRS as well. You must typically make an offer that the IRS is willing to accept—and a tax attorney can assist you.
