What Are Tax Appeals?
IRS Tax Appeals serve as a formalized process for taxpayers to challenge or dispute decisions made by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) concerning their tax returns. This process is designed to resolve disagreements between the taxpayer and the IRS in an impartial manner.
The Right to Appeal
Every taxpayer has the right to appeal if the IRS makes a change to their tax return that they disagree with. This could relate to anything reported on the tax return, such as disallowing a deduction or adjusting income figures.
IRS Appeals Office
The IRS maintains an impartial Appeals Office that operates separately from the other departments that handle tax investigations or audits. Should you get a written notice indicating a modification to your tax return, you have the option to ask for an appeals conference. This session is a casual gathering where a neutral officer evaluates the matter, akin to a judicial review. During this meeting, you have the right to be represented by qualified professionals like lawyers or Certified Public Accountants (CPAs).
Creating a Written Protest
To kickstart the appeals process, you’re required to create a formal written protest. This submission should encompass your personal details, a declaration confirming your intent to appeal, a duplicate of the IRS notice you received, the tax years under dispute, and any legal and factual arguments that bolster your stance. For disputes involving less than $25,000, an informal small-case submission is usually sufficient and doesn’t necessitate elaborate paperwork.
If the outcome of the appeals conference doesn’t meet your expectations, you’re free to take legal action. You have two options: either settle the contested tax amount and then file documents in a U.S. District Court or the Court of Federal Claims to seek a refund, or, if you’re unable or unwilling to pay the disputed amount, you can present your case to the U.S. Tax Court.
If the IRS proceeds with the collection of your tax debt after exhausting other avenues, a distinct appeals procedure is available at this juncture. However, it’s crucial to note that you can no longer dispute the legitimacy of the tax debt itself; you can only question the collection methods employed by the IRS. For example, if the IRS imposes a lien on your assets or initiates a levy, you’re entitled to contest these actions, assuming you’ve been given prior written notice by the IRS.
