Tax Collection Appeals
If you have received a Notice of Federal Tax Lien Filing, a Notice of Intent to Levy, or a Notice of Jeopardy Levy, you can be sure that the IRS is ready to use all of its powers to collect on back taxes. Before the IRS can successfully file a tax lien against you, or levy your earnings, you have every right to an appeal process. Who you choose as your tax lawyer will greatly impact how your tax collection appeal is resolved.
The Benefits of Filing a Tax Collection Appeal
Filing a tax collection appeal will protect your assets from the IRS, at least for the time being. Requesting a Collection Due Process (CDP) hearing gives you time to negotiate alternatives to a lien or levy, such as an offer in compromise. In a CDP hearing, your case is brought before an IRS appeals officer. IRS appeals officers may be more disposed than the IRS collection officers to reach an agreement with a taxpayer.
