          relates to the taxable years 1997, 1998, 1999, and 2000.  As a              
          basis for the relief requested, the petition states: “I’m in the            
          process of having my previous tax returns reviewed by another               
          CPA.  I also would like a settlement on my account so that I can            
          begin to move forward.  I have been laid off twice in the past 3            
          years and have some financial hardship.”                                    
               Within the motion for summary judgment, respondent asks that           
          we dismiss this case for lack of jurisdiction as to the taxable             
          years 1997, 1998, and 1999.                                                 
               Section 6331(a) provides that if any person liable to pay              
          any tax neglects or refuses to pay such tax within 10 days after            
          notice and demand for payment, the Secretary is authorized to               
          collect such tax by way of levy upon the person’s property.                 
          Section 6331(d) provides that at least 30 days prior to                     
          proceeding with enforced collection by way of a levy on a                   
          person’s property, the Secretary is obliged to provide the person           
          with a final notice of intent to levy, including notice of the              
          administrative appeals available to the person.                             
               Section 6330(a) provides that the Secretary shall notify a             
          person in writing of his or her right to an Appeals Office
