A Collection Due Process (CDP) hearing may be your last chance to prevent an IRS collection action, such as bank account levy. It is also an opportunity request that the IRS withdraw or release its tax lien. At a CDP hearing, you may request an installment agreement, offer in compromise, innocent spouse defense, or you may dispute the amount of tax you owe.
