My First Collection Due Process Hearing

By Patriot Tim, Nov 08

Dr. Clarkson Comments: After seven years and hundreds of CDPH cases, finally we had a tax victim receive a live in person CDP Hearing.

Patriot Tim writes: As many of us out here know a CDP Hearing sounds very intimidating. I have just accomplished my first meeting on September 24, 2008. I live 4 hours from the IRS Appeals office. After a month or so of conversing with what I thought was an appeals officer, we had a scheduled day for a face to face hearing. I reviewed with Robert on many short phone calls. I was beginning to feel like I was bothering him, but in fact I found out that this really charges him up. Thank you Robert for your help and support.

Well, here I go for the journey over the mountain to Denver CO. for my hearing with the IRS. I was not to nervous because I had lots of prayer from my bible study group as well as my men’s accountability group, but as I got closer the nerves really started to work on me, and I started to perspire a little. By the time I reached the Federal Building I had to make a phone call again to Robert to calm me down a little, and his words did that. He told me “not let them push you around!” This echoed through my mind, and a few more phone calls for prayer worked.

I was ready to face my giant. I walked in with no perspiration and introduced myself to the secretary, and said I was here for my hearing. I was a bit early so I sat and waited and waited until finally 10 minutes after the scheduled hearing the officer comes out, and says we do not have a scheduled time. I produced my official notice that stated the date and time of the hearing, and I was correct. Well I have to say I got a lot braver after that. I finally had the hearing, and it went exactly how Robert said it would go. From fumbling around to find a recorder to still not having the paper work I requested, the officer was incompetent and it was a complete joke!!!

I guess what this all comes down to is I stood my ground with the help of Robert and the Patriot Network. I am battling the IRS not by myself, but with all the other patriots who see our once great country losing ground to Greed, and an unjust government. IN GOD WE TRUST!!!!!!!

Thank You Again Robert, for your help and support
