Due Process Tax Appeals
A Due Process Appeal is a legal proceeding and protest by you. When you file a due process tax appeal puts the IRS on legal notice that you disagree with the IRS and demand a meeting with an independent Appeals Officer to change the IRS decision.
The goal of the IRS Appeals Division is to “settle” your dispute with the IRS.
One common IRS decision, which is appealed, is an increase in your tax liability due to audit. Often this increase includes additional penalties and interest. Another legal appeal is of a final notice of levy or seizure. You must file these tax appeal requests within certain time frames and follow the IRS guidelines for a valid request. If you don’t file correctly and on time, you may lose your opportunity to have a judicial review of an adverse determination by an Appeals Officer.
