The IRS has referred your case to the Department of Justice (DOJ). DOJ now has jurisdiction over your case.
How did I get here?
The IRS has requested payment for your tax balance and/or missing tax returns, but your case has not been resolved and the IRS has filed a suit to resolve your case.
What are my next steps?
If you receive correspondence, summons, or notice of litigation, don’t ignore notices from the IRS, DOJ, or court. Even if you can’t pay the taxes you owe, responding to a notice before the due date could prevent more problems. Be sure to keep your address up to date with the IRS so you receive all notices and letters.
You can hire an attorney, certified public accountant (CPA), or enrolled agent to help you if you wish. If your income is below a certain level, you may qualify for Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) representation.
