The Irn-Bru First Division side, who last week established a working party to help them fend off liquidation, confirmed they owed £129,000 in VAT and PAYE.
A club statement said: "DAFC have yet to be served with the winding-up order."
The statement continued: "DAFC were in discussions with HMRC as late as Thursday afternoon to come to a solution re the repayment of these outstanding amounts.
"It was only after DAFC called HMRC on Friday afternoon they received confirmation that HMRC had applied for a winding-up order."
