Your IRS Appeal Rights

The IRS has an appeals system for people who do not agree with the results of an examination of their tax returns or with other adjustments to their tax liability. The IRS will send you a report and/or letter that explains the proposed adjustments. The letter also tells you of your right to request a conference with an Appeals officer.

In addition to examinations, many other things can be appealed such as penalties, interest, trust fund recovery penalties, offers in compromise, liens, and levies. If you request an Appeals conference, there are important steps to take.

If we do not reach agreement with the Appeals or Settlement Officer, or you do not wish to appeal within the IRS, we may appeal certain actions through the courts.
