CP 501 Or CP 502 – If you need the IRS to remind you that own them money, you are behind in resolving the problem.  A proactive approach gets you more in your favor.  Contact Form

The CP 501 oe CP 502 are initial requests before the CP-503 and CP-504 are issued. You are in notice status now. There is probably no enforced collection action yet. What a great time to plan for your resolution with this site!

The first letter that you will receive as a reminder of balance due is the CP 501. This should alert you that the IRS is making an attempt to collect the unpaid balance due. The letter should have a calculation of penalties and interest added to the original balance. Many times this is not the correct balance. To get the correct balance, an IRS employee must log on to the IRS computer system and make sure that it is updated for penalties, interest, payments you made, etc. The letter will provide details about the money that you owe them and the tax period for which the money is due.

The CP 502 is the second letter that the IRS will issue if you do not make the payment for the balance due after you have received the CP 501. The second letter is generally more threatening than the first letter. Additional interest and penalties will have accrued, The longer you wait to make the payment, the larger the outstanding balance will be.

Both CP 501 and CP 502 are letters that inform the taxpayer about the amount of tax that you still owe to the Service.

In both these letters, the IRS will request that you make payment. Please call us at 713-774-4467 the help you plan a strategy or repayment, or the resolve an incorrect balance.
