When To Use This Form: Use this form to apply for relief from a significant hardship which may have already occurred or is about to
occur if the IRS takes or fails to take certain actions. A significant hardship normally means not being able to provide the necessities of
life for you or your family. Examples of such necessities include, but are not limited to: food, shelter, clothing, or medical care. You may
use this form at any time. Instead of using this form, however, the IRS prefers that requests for relief first be made with the IRS
office that most recently contacted you. In most cases, the relief needed can be secured directly from the appropriate IRS employee.
For example, Collection employees handle requests for payment arrangements on late taxes or releases of levy on wages, salaries, or
bank accounts; Customer Service employees handle requests for immediate refunds of overpaid taxes; Examination employees handle
requests for review of additional tax assessments when the taxpayer has had no opportunity to present proof of claimed deductions.
If an IRS office will not grant the relief requested, or will not grant the relief in time to avoid the significant hardship, you may submit this
form. No enforcement action will be taken while we are reviewing your application.
Note: Do not use this application to change the amount of any tax you owe. If you disagree with the amount of tax assessed, see
Publication 1, Your Rights as a Taxpayer.
Where To Submit This Form: Submit this application to the Internal Revenue Service, Problem Resolution Office, in the district where you live. For
