If you genuinely want a fair hearing, then you need a professional by your side throughout the entire process. The tax code is incredibly complex, and it takes an expert to not only help you navigate the audit process (that this will inevitably end up in), but also to ensure that you are treated fairly by the IRS. You do not want to end up in a deeper hole than you may already be in. Instead, seek the guidance of a tax professional who has extensive experience with these types of hearings and can pursue results and solutions that are in your favor.

One thing that you see over and over again in the titles of these notices is a reminder of your right to a hearing. The IRS wants you to meet with them in order to reach an agreement rather than seizing your property. While they will seize your property if necessary, they prefer to work with you, as it is an easier road for them. Therefore, it’s important to take advantage of this option and retain collection due process hearing representation.

The IRS will typically send you letter if they believe that you owe back taxes. If the letter is considered a final letter before action is taken, they offer you a collection due process hearing. There are several letters including:

  • Notice Number CP504
  • Notice of Federal Tax Lien Filing
  • Letter L-1058 Notice of Intent to Levy
  • LT11 Final Notice of Intent to Levy
