If you disagree with the IRS’ decision on the amount of taxes you owe, there is a recourse to help resolve the dispute without taking it to the Tax Court. You can file an appeal with the Office of Appeals which is an independent organization within the IRS. An IRS tax appeal helps you request an additional investigation into your taxes which may lead to a reduced tax bill if the investigator finds any error or anomaly. This blog will answer popular questions people ask about Appeals.  Please read on.

When can you file an appeal?

You can file an appeal if you receive a letter from the IRS explaining your right to appeal against its decision. You are, however, not eligible to file a tax appeal if the letter you receive from the IRS is a bill and there is no mention of appeals, or if you had failed to provide complete information to the examiner during the audit. When filing an appeal, the reason for disagreement should be within the scope of stipulated tax laws.

What are the different types of appeals?

There are three types of IRS appeals:

  1. Collection Appeal Request
  2. Request for a Collection Due Process (or equivalent hearing)
  3. Application for Taxpayer Assistance Order

How can you file an appeal?

A taxpayer can make a Collection Appeal Request before the IRS files a lien or a levy. They can even file if they already sent a levy to the bank account before issuing a final Notice of Intent to levy or to your employer to garnish your wages while there is already a pending instalment agreement in place.

The Request for a Collection Due Process or equivalent hearing, on the other hand can be used to resolve nearly every tax dispute.

Lastly, if a tax dispute is taking a long time to resolve, The Application for Taxpayer Assistance Order helps the taxpayer receive additional help from the IRS Taxpayer Advocate Service.

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.

Thank you Nick and team for easing my fears and getting me through the long process. I'm truly grateful.

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!
