CP523 Notice: What It Means and Why It Matters

The CP523 Notice serves as an official notification from the IRS that you have defaulted on your installment agreement. The notice outlines the IRS’s intent to terminate the agreement and potentially seize (levy) your wages and/or bank accounts if you fail to take prompt action. Additionally, the notice highlights the denial or revocation of a United States Passport as a consequence of seriously delinquent tax debt, in accordance with the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act legislation.

Essential Steps to Take When You Receive a CP523 Notice

1. Make your payment before the termination date

To prevent the termination of your installment agreement, it is crucial to make your payment before the specified termination date. Explore your payment options and visit the IRS payments page to ensure timely payment.

2. Contact the IRS immediately

Reach out to the IRS as soon as possible to explore the possibility of reinstating your installment agreement. Depending on your circumstances, you may need to pay a fee to reinstate the agreement or settle any new tax liability promptly.

3. Carefully review the notice

Take the time to read the notice thoroughly, as it provides essential instructions for addressing your defaulted installment agreement. Understanding the reasons behind the action taken by the IRS will help you navigate the situation more effectively.

4. Respond promptly to the notice

Failure to respond to the CP523 Notice can lead to the termination of your installment agreement and initiation of collection actions. This can include filing a federal tax lien or seizing (levying) your wages and/or bank accounts. It is crucial to take action to avoid these consequences.
