The saga of the IRS Letters with “bad” deadline dates continues. The IRS letters were supposed to include inserts advising taxpayers of new deadline dates superseding the incorrect dates on the face of the letters. However, whoops…, many of those inserts did not find their way into the IRS letters at all. To remedy this, a supplemental Letter 544-C (Procedure Adjustment Letter) was generated on August 6, 2020 and mailed on August 7, 2020, advising taxpayers that they have until September 8, 2020 to request a Collection Due Process (CDP) IRS Appeals hearing. In some cases, the Letter 544-C advised taxpayers they only had until September 7, 2020. September 7 of course is Labor Day and, in that instance, by statute the due date for the CDP hearing is the next business day, which is September 8. Three central problems are present: one, taxpayer confusion; two, IRS computers “thinking” the September 7 CDP hearing deadline was missed and starting – unjustified – collection actions; and three, the possibly of incorrect entries on IRS Account Transcripts (the IRS’s internal “business records”). If you are in IRS Collections and should be afforded IRS Appeals rights, be aware of this issue and seek professional counsel if you encounter a problem with a missed deadline date – the result of an IRS misstep.
