Collection Appeals Program (CAP) Attorney in Chicago

The Tax Relief Help You Need When You Need it

If you are attempting to appeal an IRS action, having a Chicago collection appeals lawyer can make all the difference. The Collection Appeals Program (CAP) is more readily available to individuals than CDP, but if the appeal is denied, you will not be able to petition the tax court.

Can Appeal

  • Notice of federal tax lien (before or after the lien is filed)
  • Notice of levy
  • Seizure of property
  • Denial or termination of an IA

How to Appeal

If you received a notice or telephone call:

  • Call IRS, explain the action you disagree with and offer a solution.
  • If you cannot reach an agreement, tell the employee that you want to appeal their decision. The employee must honor your request and refers you to a manager. The manager will either speak to you then or call you back.
  • Explain to the manager what you disagree with; if you do not agree with the manager’s decision, it will forward to appeals.

If You Have Been Contacted By a Revenue Officer

  • First request a conference with a collection manager
  • If no resolution, request appeals consideration by completing form 9423, “collection appeal request” check the action you disagree with
  • Explain why you disagree
  • Explain your solution to solve the tax problem

Submit form 9423 to that collection office:

  • For a lien, levy, or seizure, send the collection appeal request with 2 days of your conference
  • For a denial or termination of an IA, you have 30 days to submit your request
  • IRS cannot levy until 30 days after the denial or termination of an IA
  • Appeal is made within the 30 days, IRS must stop the levy until the appeal is completed

Once an appeals officer makes a decision, the decision is binding and there will be no judicial review of the decision.
