If you disagree with specific IRS collection actions, you may have the right to request a Collection Due Process (CDP) hearing. During the hearing, you or your authorized representative will state your case and provide documentation to support your position.

- The IRS files a tax lien.
- You receive a Final Notice of Intent to Levy.
- You receive a notice explaining that the IRS levied your state tax refund or federal contractor payments.
