Taxpayers can appeal when they disagree with an IRS decision
When taxpayers disagree with the IRS’s decision on their tax situation, they can submit a written request to have the IRS Independent Office of Appeals review the decision. The goal of Appeals is to resolve tax disputes outside of the courtroom in a way that is fair and impartial and encourages voluntary compliance with tax law. This office is separate from the rest of the IRS in order to ensure its impartiality.
Who can file an appeal
Taxpayers should review the facts and tax law relevant to their situation and gather any documents needed to support their position.
Requesting an appeal
Taxpayers may represent themselves or have a tax professional represent them during the appeal process. More details about who can serve as a representative is in Practice before IRS and Power of Attorney, Publication 947.
