Financial Accounting Advice: IRS Form 911

There is now a written procedure to request the IRS to stop imminent action. If you expect the IRS to commence imminent action against you, you can apply to stop that action if it will cause serious hardship.
To get emergency help, use Form 911. It’s called Application for Taxpayer Assistance Order. Complete the form and send it to your local Taxpayer Advocate Office. For the address of the Taxpayer Advocate Office in your area, call the National Taxpayer Advocate toll free number 1-877-777-4778.
A Form 911 application is given top priority by the Taxpayer Advocate Office. All enforcement action is halted while your application is being reviewed. The IRS states that most taxpayers can expect action on a Form 911 application within one day.
