Although tax auditors exercise various precautions when carrying out audits, the final report can still have errors. If you have reasons to believe that there is any error in your report, you can challenge it by filing a written request with the IRS Office of Appeals. Formally called “IRS appeal”, the request is a provision to help taxpayers resolve tax disputes with the Federal body.

Below are three things that you must keep in mind when filing an appeal against an IRS report.

1. What is Office of Appeals?

The IRS Office of Appeal is an independent organization formed in 1927 to resolve tax disputes between the taxpayer and the Federal Government. Every year the Office of Appeals helps thousands of taxpayers resolve their tax disputes without having to go to the Tax Court. In addition the appeal process carried at the Office of Appeals is less formal and more economical than the Tax Court and is also not subjected to any judicial rules of evidence or procedure.

2. How to Request an Appeal?

You can request an appeal if:

  • You believe that the IRS’ decision was inapt or did not comply with any of the tax laws.
  • You believe  that the IRS has misunderstood any of the facts of your case.
  • You believe that the IRS is charging inappropriate collection from you.
  • You disagree with your Offer in Compromise decision.
  • You believe the facts determined by the IRS are incorrect.

3. What is the Appeal Process?

In all cases mentioned above, taxpayers or their representatives have to give a formal written protest to request an Appeals conference. Conferences with appeals office personnel is then conducted with the taxpayer or its authorized representative. Taxpayers can also submit a small case request if the tax and penalty amount charged to them is $25,000 or less. If you are planning to file an appeal, the formal written protest must be sent within the time limit specified in the letter, which is usually 30 days from the issuance date of the letter.

I would like to thank Mr. Nick and his staff for the superb help that I received from them. My IRS problem was resolved quickly and efficiently. It took 2 visits to convince me that I was over my head. I thought that I could call the IRS, appeal my tax notices and settle on a payment plan on my own. After many phone calls to the IRS, waiting sometimes more than 4 hours with no resolution to speak of, it proved to be extremely difficult and stressful. Revisiting Mr. Nick was a huge wake up call. My account was reviewed, and a payment plan was established with the IRS within a week. I will be forever grateful to the staff who worked on my case and especially to Lorna who listened to me vent while going through this painful process.

I cannot say enough good things about Nick and his team. When I first met with Nick he was up front, honest, friendly and efficient. When I worked with one of his attorneys, Eric B, I was just as pleased. All of the staff there are nice and very helpful. I wish I hadn't waited so long to get help with my issue. Over 6yrs I tried getting through and getting anywhere with the IRS and hardly made any progress. I know this may not be the case for all, and even I thought it would take longer than it did, but 3mos and they had my situation straightened out. I still can't believe it. Thank you thank you THANK YOU for all that you did for me. This is a huge burden gone out of my life now thanks to you. If anyone needs help out there, I know you may not want to shell out more money to get their help but it may just save you in the long run.

During a time in which competent, professional service at a fair price seems to have disappeared, Mr. Nemeth and his team are a refreshing breath of fresh air.From my first phone call to the final settlement of our case with a non-responsive IRS, they under-promised, over-delivered and were in constant courteous contact to make sure we knew exactly what was happening and where we stood.I hope to never need their services again, but, should I receive another friendly letter from the IRS...I know who to call!
