If you had a hearing on unpaid employment tax periods, you aren’t entitled to a pre-levy hearing under IRC Section 6330 for any unpaid employment tax periods that occur within 2 years after those periods. Our records show that you (or your predecessor) previously requested a hearing under IRC Section 6330 that included an employment tax period falling within the two-year period. We've already sent you several notices about the amount you owe. What happens if I can't pay what I owe? You can apply online for a payment plan (including installment agreements).
