IRS Administrative Disputes & Appeals
Tax disputes can get expensive and time consuming for the government if taken to trial. As such, many tax disputes can be resolved at the administrative level. However, to successfully win an administrative appeal, taxpayers must be informed and willing to act. Taxpayers generally appeal a tax ruling after completing a tax audit in which the ruling was unfavorable to them. With the assistance of a professional, these taxpayers can appeal the decision by submitting a protest letter proposing an adjustment. The protest letter should demonstrate why litigating the issue would be costly to government resources by detailing the facts and legal arguments of the case. If sufficiently persuasive, the issue can be resolved at the administrative level, thereby saving the taxpayer and the government alike valuable resources.
