CP504 Notice: What It Is and How to Respond

Receiving a notice from the IRS can be daunting, and understanding the specifics of each notice is crucial to effectively addressing it. The CP504 Notice, or the Notice of Intent to Levy, is one such notice that demands immediate attention. In this post, we'll break down what the CP504 Notice entails and how Advanced Tax Solutions (ATS) can assist you in navigating this challenging situation.

Understanding the CP504 Notice

The CP504 Notice is a serious alert from the IRS, indicating that you have an unpaid tax balance that has not been settled despite previous notices. This notice is not the final notice before the IRS takes action, but it's a critical step in their process to collect the owed taxes. It signifies the IRS's intent to levy, or legally seize, your assets if the balance is not paid. This can include garnishing wages, taking funds from your bank accounts, seizing property, or intercepting your state income tax refund.

Receiving a CP504 Notice means you're at a pivotal point where the IRS is escalating its efforts to collect the debt you owe. It's a clear indication that ignoring this notice could lead to significant financial and personal stress.
