The IRS has three years from the date you filed your income tax or other return
To assess additional taxes, they have six years if they can prove you committed fraud.
Although they hope that you will pay voluntarily, if you don’t they can look for other ways to get the past due amount. Depending on the amount you owe, and how long you’ve owed it, they can impose liens on your property, garnish your wages, put a hold on your bank account, and take any tax refunds you may be owed. The good news is that they understand that people have circumstances that prevent them from paying in a timely manner, and so they provide several options to help you get compliant. Depending on your particular situation, you might qualify for a reduction of the amount owed, or you may be able to set up a payment plan. By exploring different options you can find a solution that will get you back on track for paying those past due taxes.
