H.R. 5446 - To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to restrict the immediate sale of seized property by the Secretary of the Treasury to perishable goods.

Introduced: 2018-04-10
Bill Status: Motion to reconsider laid on the table Agreed to without objection.
 

This bill amends the Internal Revenue Code to limit the authority of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to immediately sell certain seized property to perishable goods.

(Under current law, the IRS may sell the property after it has been appraised and the owner has been given the opportunity to pay the appraised value or furnish a bond for payment. The authority currently applies to property that is liable to perish, is liable to become greatly reduced in price, or cannot be kept without great expense.)
