Hi, I sent my 2019 payment in on July 10th, and the IRS still hasnt cashed the check. I just received a intent to seize (levy) notice. How much longer should I wait before I do an online payment? They are also charging me a late fee/interest, which is insane because I have the USPS tracking code, showing it was sent and received.
Unfortunately, the USPS tracking code shows only that you sent something to IRS, not that you sent a check. Was this a payment sent with a tax return? And now it is clear that they have the tax return, since you have received a collection notice? Was it a 1040? Did you mail it to an IRS Service Center, or to the lockbox address in the instructions? At this point, pay the tax and ask in a letter that the penalty and interest be abated, giving your side of the story. A copy of the Post Office receipt is helpful, but not conclusive.
