Tax Resolution Attorney John P. Willis Acknowledges That Some Taxpayers Are Receiving Balance Due Notices From The IRS And What To Do Once They Are Received.

Tax resolution attorney John Willis, CEO, and founder of IRSALLSTAR, provides options that the IRS offers for taxpayers who receive Balance Due Notices.

Fairhope, AL, July 1 2022: Tax Attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of, recently published an article on his website entitled “You’ve Received An IRS Balance Due Notice.” Mr. Willis helps readers understand the options available to them for taking care of their outstanding IRS tax debt.

“With the backlogs and confusion created by the pandemic,” Willis writes, “the IRS announced that it would suppress sending out many balance-due reminder notices until they caught up on processing paper returns, correspondence, and other backlogged items. As it turns out,” he adds, “the IRS can’t suppress about 9 million notices that go out every year. These are the first balance-due notices in a series of collection notices. It’s called the CP14 notice and demand for tax.” 

As Willis explains, “By law, the CP14 notice is required to be issued within 60 days after the IRS assesses the tax. The bulk of CP14 notices show up in the beginning of June asking for payment within 21 days.” 

According to Willis, “If you received a balance due notice and don’t respond with payment, the IRS can begin the process to collect the taxes by levy or by filing a notice of federal tax lien.” He goes on to explain that, “Usually, the IRS will send a series of reminder notices, called the collection notice stream, to ask for payment before starting enforced collection. However, there are several options if you can’t pay the amount due in its entirety within the 21-day period.”

“First and most importantly,” Willis writes, “don’t ignore the notice. If you need help due to the amount you owe or other circumstances, contact our office. Dealing with the IRS is what we do on a daily basis.”

Willis provides a variety of options that include paying the full amount right away to a much more complicated solution called an Offer in Compromise (OIC). Willis points out that each option has its own pros and cons and states, “Your specific circumstances will determine which option is best.”
