A funeral home in Batesville, Mississippi hired Timberline to protect it from enforced collection action once a Revenue Officer was assigned to its account. The Enrolled Agent working on the case immediately determined the urgency of the protection and obtained a hold of enforcement while the company’s financial information was collected and reviewed. After months of back and forth discussions regarding the status of the business, the Associate requested the case file be sent to the Office of Appeals. It was during negotiations with the Appeals Officer that the full business information was reviewed and it was determined that a Status 53, Currently Not Collectible, was the best resolution for the taxpayer. This allows the business to move forward without fear of aggressive collection action by the Internal Revenue Service for at least the two next years.
