What is a Due Process Hearing?

A Due Process Hearing, also known as a Collection Due Process (CDP) hearing, is your opportunity to challenge IRS collection actions such as levies, liens, or asset seizures. The hearing is conducted by an independent IRS Office of Appeals officer and provides you with the chance to present your case, propose alternative solutions, and seek relief from unjust collection actions.

Questions? Dayes Law Firm Has The Answers

The IRS is not going to just take your money or assets without noticeYou should have received a Letter LT-11 or L1058  In this notice it tells you that if you disagree with the levy you can request a collections due process hearingThis will allow you a chance to share why you do not owe the moneyIf you do owe the money you can also enter into an Installment Agreement or potentially an Offer in CompromiseIf you enter into a payment agreement with the IRS, the levy will not be acted upon as long as you abide by the terms of the agreement.

You can appeal the determination of the CDP Hearing to US Tax Court.  You will not be able to bring new issues or evidence to Tax Court that was not brought up previously during the CDP Hearing.  So to ensure that you are successful in Tax Court you must first bring up the issue at the CDP hearing.

You can request an equivalent hearingThis will be treated much the same as a regular CDP HearingHowever, the IRS will not be barred from acting upon the levy or lien notices previously issuedIn addition, you will be unable to appeal the determination to Tax Court.  If you miss the deadline, it likely will still be in the Taxpayers best interest to request an equivalent hearing as long as they understand the IRS will start collecting on the debt.
