Chicago Tax Debt Appeals Lawyer

Working to Protect Your Best Interests

At Attorneys Tax Relief, LLC, our team has extensive experience handling appeals matters for our clients. No matter what challenges you may be facing, we have a dedicated tax debt appeals attorney in Chicago who can help.

Collection Due Process (CDP)

  • Gives the client the most rights
  • Filing a levy is stayed pending resolution of the appeal
  • You can file a petition in the tax court if the appeal is denied

CDP appeals can be used to appeal:

  • Notice of intent to lien
  • Notice of intent to levy

Use Form 12153

Use language in the appeal as follows:

“That (propose alternative; OIC or IA) would be a less intrusive manner of settling the tax liability.”

You have 30 days to file the appeal.

The advantage with CDP (preserves the right to file a petition in tax court if the result of the appeal is not satisfactory):

  • If an appeal request is not timely, you will be allowed an “equivalent hearing”
  • No statutory suspension of collection action
  • No right to file a tax court petition

Appeal of Rejection of OIC

If OIC is rejected, you can appeal. Indeed, most OIC's end up in appeals. If you originally filed OIC through appeals, usually in response to an appeal of a final notice of intent to levy, you will have the right to petition tax court.

Initiating an Appeal

The IRS will tell you what is required to appeal. Once an appeal is filed, you will be notified that it has been assigned to an appeal officer. You will then have options on proceeding with a conference, written correspondence or telephone. The proceedings are informal.

This can be a confusing process, and there are many places where a person could go wrong. Call our tax appeal attorney in Chicago at (800) 261-6671 to learn more about how we can help.
