IRS Notice CP90

Final Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to a Hearing 

Each year, millions of taxpayers are faced with a tax bill they can't afford to pay. If you receive an IRS CP90 Tax Levy notice, you need to respond quickly. Let the experts at H&R Block identify the best plan of action and address the problem before it gets worse.

What happened?

  1. You owed a tax balance after you filed your return with the IRS.
  2. The IRS sent multiple notices requesting your payment, but never received payment.
  3. The IRS sent CP90 as notice of your right to a hearing and a final notice of intent to levy your property, potentially including your paychecks, bank accounts, state income tax refunds and more.
  4. The IRS will continue to levy your assets if you don't pay the balance or contact the IRS to establish a payment arrangement within 30 days.
