A taxpayer can file Form 9243, Collection Appeal Request, according to Alexander Kotwal, a CPA and tax manager for Marcum LLP, a national accounting and advisory firm headquartered in New York City. Kotwal said it allows a taxpayer “to provide a proposed solution to settle their balance due via the amended return. Filing Form 9243 generally stops the collection process until the issue is settled between the IRS and the taxpayer.”
