The IRS Office of Appeals
The Office of Appeals is an independent organization within the IRS whose mission is to help taxpayers and the government resolve tax disagreements. Appeals does not seek to take sides in a dispute. They offer an objective point of view on each individual case. Each case is reviewed after the applicable IRS compliance has made its decision. The Office of Appeals works to resolve disagreements on a fair and impartial basis to both the taxpayer and the government. As a taxpayer, you are entitled to dispute the results of an IRS assessment through the administrative appeal process for any reason other than religious, moral or political, conscientious objections.
