I am working on one of my first notices through Canopy. In the response letter template it suggests I should send in Form 9423 (Collection Appeal Request). Looking at that form it has a section for an explanation of why we are filing for an appeal. Is there any guidance on what type of wording should be put here? I wouldn’t know what to say.
You may want to review Pub 1660 (specifically page 3-4) regarding CAP (https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p1660.pdf). Typically, in your explanation, it is ideal to explain the situation and reference the IRM regarding the action you are appealing. That will likely fill up a lot of the wording for you!
FOR EXAMPLE: if you’re appealing an active levy (via CAP) based upon hardship, you would explain why this is causing a hardship and include references to the IRM to support the thought process.
Hope this helps,
Jeff, this is great! Thank you very much!
