Did You Receive A CP90?
The IRS CP90 notifies you of your unpaid taxes and that the IRS intends to levy to collect the amount owed. The letter and referenced publications explain how to request and appeal if you do not agree.
You will need to file a Form 12153, Request for A Collection Due Process Hearing and send it to the address shown on your levy notice within 30 days from the date of the CP90 in order to appeal the proposed action with the Office of Appeals.
An appeal or protest is a chance to have your voice heard, but only reasonable protests (those that are backed by the tax code) have a reasonable chance of being overturned.
Thus, we highly recommend engaging the services of an experienced Enrolled Agent, such as Tax Samaritan, that can serve as your representative with the IRS if you have received a CP90 notice. Click to learn more about the Appeals Process .
