Frequently Asked Questions About IRS Tax Problems
What can I do if IRS has filed tax levy or placed a federal lien against me?
A Collection Due Process Hearing, also known as a CDP hearing, maybe your last best chance to resolve a tax controversy and stop a bank levy with the IRS short of tax litigation. The IRS does not allow taxpayers to request these hearings for “frivolous” reasons. That includes refusing to pay tax on religious or moral grounds.
What Are Some Legitimate Reasons to Request a CDP Hearing?
- You want to seek payment alternatives such as a payment plan or an offer in compromise. To get these plans accepted, you must file all delinquent returns.
- You have a terminal illness and overwhelming medical bills.
- You can’t pay because you’re living on Social Security or unemployment.
- You can’t afford to pay with your income—the IRS has strict guidelines on this type of hardship arrangement.
Generally, the IRS must issue a Notice of Intent to Levy and Right to Request a Hearing before it sends a levy. Requesting a Collection Due Process Hearing
Complete Form 12153 Request for a Collection Due Process Hearing, and send it to the IRS at the address shown on the lien or levy notice within 30 days.
The taxpayer should check the IRS actions that he disagrees with and explain why he disagrees with such actions.
If the taxpayer receives both a lien and a bank levy notice, the taxpayer may appeal both actions.
The taxpayer must identify all reasons for disagreement, and may raise the following issues relating to the unpaid tax:
a. Appropriateness of collection actions;
b. Collection alternatives such as installment plan, offer in compromise, posting a bond, or substitution of other assets;
c. Appropriate spousal defenses; and
d. The existence or amount of the tax, but only if the taxpayer did not receive a notice of deficiency or did not otherwise have an opportunity to dispute the tax liability.
What is a federal tax lien?
A federal lien is a public record on your property that says you owe the IRS money.
It tells creditors that the IRS has a claim on all your property, including property you buy after the lien is filed.
If a lien is attached to your property, you cannot sell that property without a clear title.
