Your collection case has been closed, because the IRS records show you do not have any payments or tax returns currently due.
The IRS sent you a letter or notice regarding your missing tax return or balance due on your tax account. You chose to either file your missing tax return, pay the balance (tax plus any penalties and interest due) in full, or pursue a payment option which may have included an installment agreement, offer in compromise or currently not collectible status. As a result, your case is closed, or your case is temporarily closed since it was determined that you are unable to pay the money owed at this time.
You don’t need to take any action at this time. However, it is very important that you file all future tax returns and pay any amounts you owe on time. If you cannot pay in full, pay as much as you can to limit penalties and interest.
If you have any questions about your account, please call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040 (individuals) or 1-800-829-4933 (businesses) or 1-267-941-1000 (international – not a toll-free call). For general information rather than case-related questions, you can also check on the IRS website at IRS.gov.

Low Income Taxpayer Clinics (LITCs) are independent from the IRS and TAS. LITCs represent individuals whose income is below a certain level and who need to resolve tax problems with the IRS. LITCs can represent taxpayers in audits, appeals, and tax collection disputes before the IRS and in court. In addition, LITCs can provide information about taxpayer rights and responsibilities in different languages for individuals who speak English as a second language. Services are offered for free or a small fee. For more information or to find an LITC near you, see the LITC page on the TAS website or Publication 4134, Low Income Taxpayer Clinic List.
