Non-collectible Status with IRS and Naturalization

We owe taxes but just couldn't afford to pay it right now so we called the IRS to try to set-up a payment arrangement but the agent put us on a "non-collectible" status instead. At the same time, I am gathering all my requirements to hopefully file for naturalization. My question is, will a "non-collectible" status deny me citizenship? I really need enlightenment on this one.

Yikes, it's very hard to tell at the moment. I'm not sure how heavy tax records would affect your N-400 application.

Anybody can weight on this subject? I personally think it might be a bump in your journey....

Do not file for naturalization until you have sorted out IRS issue and can bring the statement from IRS you have payment plan set up with them.

I second the above.

Owing money to the IRS is only acceptable for naturalization purposes if you have a payment plan, in writing.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Thank you all for the quick response. I just called the IRS again and did the payment arrangement. Another question, the IRS put a lien on my credit for the taxes owed. Will that be a problem or will it be ok as long as I have the paperwork showing that there's a payment plan set-up?
