The League One club have faced a number of winding-up orders in the last two years for non-payment of their tax bills.
Moroccan businessman Abdallah Lemsagam has been in negotiations with Oldham's chairman Simon Corney for several months and was understood to be close to securing a deal to take over ownership of the club.
HMRC told Sky Sports News on Monday afternoon that it cannot comment on individual cases and a statement from the club said they "have co-operated with them [HMRC] fully and will continue to do so."
In April this year, HMRC carried out dawn raids at the offices of both West Ham and Newcastle as part of an investigation into tax fraud in football.
