We Can Help You With Collection Due Process Requests
If you’ve received a notice in the mail from the IRS detailing the unpaid tax debt that is due and owing, depending on the notice, you may file a Collection Due Process Request for a hearing with IRS Appeals.
At What Point Should I Consider Tax Relief & When Do I File?
Some IRS notices that prompts the option to request a Collection Due Process hearing are as follow:
- Notice of Jeopardy Levy and Right of Appeal
- IRC 6320 – Notice of Federal Tax Lien Filing and Your Right to a Hearing
- Post Levy Collection Due Process Notice
- Final Notice – Notice of Intent to Levy and Your Right to a Hearing
You can file IRS Form 12153 – Request for a Collection Due Process or Equivalent hearing – to request a CDP hearing. However, you must file it within 30 days of receiving the last intent to collect notification. If you do not respond to this request by the listed deadline on the notice, you may request an equivalent hearing. However, an equivalent hearing request will not prohibit levy, and you will be unable to go to court to appeal the IRS Independent Office of Appeals’ decision. An equivalent hearing is also subject to various deadlines that must be abided by.
Your tax relief attorney will provide details breaking down the recovery measure is inaccurate or unjustified at your CDP hearing. Additionally, your tax relief attorney should submit an alternate proposal to the IRS concerning the recovery action.
