Assessment of Deficiency

Assessment of Deficiency

The amount that a taxpayer owes in back taxes as determined by the IRS and, if one was requested, an appeal. For example, if one owed $50,000 in taxes for 2009 but only paid $40,000, the IRS would make an assessment of deficiency for $10,000, plus interest and penalties.
