The IRS has sent several notices requesting full payment of your taxes and you still haven’t paid. You need to pay immediately or face a levy (seizure) or your property. This is a final notice and you need to take it seriously.
Notification of collection
You have received a CP77 notice because the IRS is notifying you that they are planning to levy some or all of your assets for unpaid taxes. You do have a right to a Collection Due Process hearing.
As always, read the notice carefully. Then, you need to either pay the full amount you owe or, if you cannot afford to pay the full balance, you can set up a payment plan. You can also contact a tax professional to learn more about your options.
The CP77 notice will include a due date for your tax payment.
The IRS will issue a levy against your assets.
