Relevant Date of an IRS Notice


Is the date an IRS notice is mailed the relevant date?

The IRS can’t seize property unless it gives a person notice in writing of a right to, and the opportunity for, a hearing. Notice can be made by certified/registered mail or hand delivery at least 30 days before the first levy.

In one case, the IRS attempted to hand deliver a notice dated Feb. 11 but was deterred by the homeowner’s dog. The IRS mailed the notice two days later.

A U.S. Appeals Court ruled the mailing date began the 30-day period, not the date printed on the notice.
