If a lien is placed onyou by the IRS and you do not pay them or let them know that you are currently working, can you go to jail?- If they find out?




Debtor's prison went away with the dark ages.

Believe me..the IRS can find you....and of course they can find out if you are working.

Call them and set up a payment plan. They are relatively easy to work with.

How can they find me if I didn't send in a W2?

Mary,

They can find you, unless you are committing stealth bankruptcy!

You work? Your employer submits payroll taxes and fica at least quarterly. It is all attached to your SS#.

Not sure about the jail part. But they say the interest they charge is pretty steep. So I believe I would try to work out a payment plan if not they will catch up with you and you could be working just to pay them.

You can go on their website and do a payment agreement. If they put a lien against your property, eventually they will seize it depending on the amount you owe. I owe a total of $7,500 and have been paying them monthly. If you get any state or federal income tax refunds, they will intercept it for payment against your arrears. Also, any economic "stimulus" payments from the government. They took the $600 the Bush admin. gave to taxpayers. It's better to work out an agreement and also amend your W-4 so that you don't owe taxes in the future.

PLEASE contact the IRS, they will work with you! I have a friend who owed them quite a bit of cash. He contacted them (initially he was scared to do this) and they put him on a payment plan he can afford.

Owing the IRS can have alot of negative effects. I encourage you contact them ASAP to try and set up a payment plan as suggested above. Once you owe the IRS they will continue to place liens on property you own, garnish wages and stimulus checks. Please avoid this by contacting them.
