Music. Hi and thanks for stopping by. I'm Larry Weinstein, a CPA and the founder of solvemytaxproblems.com, based in Houston, Texas. Today, I wanted to answer the question: Does the IRS care if you file for a CDP hearing or fill out a Form 1215-3? Requests for a Collection Due Process hearing, does the IRS care if you file for this hearing? No. As a matter of fact, it's your legitimate right to file for a Collection Due Process hearing when you receive the Final Notice of Intent to Levy from the IRS. In fact, when the IRS sends you Letter 1058, which is the Final Notice of Intent to Levy, they typically include Form 1215-3 in the package. This form is a request for a Collection Due Process hearing. So, you are well within your rights to exercise this option. It's always a good idea to exercise your rights because it protects you from wage or bank levies until your actual Collection Due Process hearing takes place. To answer the question once again, does the IRS care if you file for your Collection Due Process hearing? No, it's your right, and they don't care at all if you do so. That's it for today's topic. That's it for today's video. I appreciate you stopping by and look forward to hearing from you soon. You music.
