Collection Due Process Hearings

What to Discuss
If you are granted a collection due process hearing, you are able to discuss any number of issues; however, depending on your situation, there are certain questions or issues that you may want to address specifically, including:
- Debts paid before any action was taken
- Automatic stay due to a bankruptcy claim
- Expired statute of limitations for collection
- Disputing previous assessed liabilities
- Presenting a defense, such as a spousal defense
In addition to discussing the above issues, you may want to discuss the collection options available to you. No matter what you choose to discuss, having a knowledgeable tax relief lawyer helping you prepare your case can make the difference between being debt free and having IRS actions, such as tax liens or levies, imposed on you.
