Law Change to Revise the Definition of “Final Determination” by The Federal Government – New Definition Effective as of January 1, 2004.

The IRS code (Sec. 6443) specifies exemptions from levy, which include, but are not limited to:

A final federal determination means there is no further administrative or judicial appeal. Changes in federal taxable income resulting from a closing agreement, an offer in compromise or any similar agreement executed on or after January 1, 2004 constitute a final determination of a change by the federal government. An agreement may constitute a final determination whether or not any audit or other review is complete with respect to issues not addressed in the agreement.
