If the IRS ever makes an amendment to your tax return that you do not agree with, you have the right to appeal against the decision. The IRS Office of Appeals offers a way to resolve disagreements with the IRS that relate to your financial assessments. Taxpayers are entitled to get a written response within a certain period of time after they have appealed against an IRS decision, including penalties. If you are wrongly penalized by the IRS, this blog post is for you. Read on as we cover all the details of the process of appealing against the IRS.

Types of IRS Appeals

Two of the most common types of IRS tax appeals is :

  1. Request for a Collection Due Process :Filing an appeal once the IRS issues a final notice of intent to levy for the client comes under this category. The notice is generally delivered via certified mail.
  2. Rejected Offer in Compromise : A final opportunity within administrative process to negotiate the submitted Offer In Compromise. A blank Form 12203 typically arrives in the mail along with the Rejected Offer.

IRS Tax Appeal Process

Drafting a Written Protest

First, you need to prepare a formal written application to exercise your right to appeal. The document needed are personal contact information, an affirmative statement that you are requesting your right to an appeal, a copy of the notification, the relevant tax years and statements of law and fact that support your tax return position.

Filing a Lawsuit

If the appeals officer agrees with the IRS, you have the option of challenging the IRS in court. You can pay the amount of tax in dispute and file the appropriate documentation in a U.S. court for a refund, if you choose to pursue the issue in court. You can hire The Law Offices of Nick Nemeth as your professional tax attorney, who can handle the entire process on your behalf.

Tips & Forms Against the IRS

If your application gets rejected, the IRS will have the right to start collecting tax debt from you; although, you can challenge the methods the IRS uses for collection. The IRS needs to provide you an advance notice before it enforces a levy or a lien. You have the right to appeal, if it fails to give you notice or violates other laws and procedures. However, this will only delay the IRS from collecting tax from you, but at the end you have to pay your taxes.

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!
