    Did you happen to notice that the original post was almost two years ago?

    I doubt that the poster is coming back for more responses at this point.

    I know this much ... I'm glad I'm not in your shoes. It's not often, in my experience, that the IRS doesn't catch up with you.
    I'd suggest dealing with this as soon as possible.

I left a message and gave her my phone number. It appears to me they are confused. I'm thinking I should not call them but wait until they again contact me.
    You are not supposed to have two social security numbers. If you really do, that's a huge problem. You need to go down to your local Social Security Administration office and straighten that out. That could cause huge problems for you at retirement time....particularly if your work credits are divided between two social security numbers. I don't even know how you managed to get two.

    However, of course the IRS had no record of the debt under the new social security number. The record is under the other one. Its sure going to look like fraud to the IRS that you have worked under two different numbers.

    Usually it's 10 years unless fraud is suspected. Not confirming your SSN and then using another one going forward may cause them to suspect fraud. I'd suggest that you need to work with a tax professional to resolve whatever outstanding issues you have with the IRS -- ignoring them is not a good idea.

    started a topic IRS & statute of limitations question

    IRS & statute of limitations question

    In 1994 I was living in a small town and lost my job. To survive I sold a piece of real estate for about $27,000. The following year I attempted to figure out the capital gains tax but got lost in the maze. I filed the return with amount I got for the real estate and included a note to the IRS that I couldn’t figure out how much tax I owed. I then left the town and moved to a larger city. I got a job and have been filing tax returns ever since but under a new SS number. It was a valid number that I got when a teenager but had never used it. I did this because when I lost my job I got into some credit problems and couldn’t open a bank account in the new city. I occasionally got notices from the IRS to confirm my old SS number but ignored them. I now have received an IRS notice that I owe them $8,000 of which over half is accrued interest. They only say the tax is late. They do not say there if any fraud involved, which is true. They threaten me with seizure of real estate (which I don’t have) and personal property. Is this tax subject to the statute of limitations? Especially since I have been filing returns ever since 1994 and they have never raised the issue. The SS administration has my account there under both SS numbers so couldn’t the IRS have the same information?
