Introduction to the IRS Appeals Division

The IRS Appeals Division serves as a critical avenue for taxpayers seeking to resolve disputes without resorting to court trials. This independent entity within the IRS is dedicated to handling administrative reviews of cases, aiming to negotiate and possibly settle tax debts. The Division’s mission emphasizes resolving tax controversies fairly and impartially for both the IRS and the taxpayer.

Cases Handled by the IRS Appeals Division

The IRS Appeals Division addresses a broad spectrum of appeals, including but not limited to:

  • Appeals arising from IRS audits
  • Collection actions (including liens, levies, seizures, and denied installment agreements)
  • Refund claims
  • Collection due process hearings
  • Offers in compromise
  • Interest abatement claims

This wide range of cases underscores the Division’s pivotal role in tax dispute resolution, offering taxpayers a formal avenue to contest IRS decisions and actions.

Preparing for an IRS Appeals Conference

When you engage with the IRS Appeals Division, you enter an informal procedure that allows for negotiation and presentation of evidence supporting your position. The process involves an IRS Appeals officer reviewing your proposed resolution and any pertinent evidence. This section outlines what to expect during the conference and how Murray Moyer, PLLC can assist you in this critical stage.

Key Steps in the Appeals Process

  1. Initial Preparation: Gather all relevant documentation and evidence related to your tax dispute. This may include audit reports, correspondence with the IRS, financial records, and any other documents supporting your case.
  2. Submission of Request: Officially request an appeal through the appropriate IRS form or written protest, depending on the nature of your case.
  3. The Conference: Engage in the appeals conference, an informal meeting where you (and your attorney) present your case to the Appeals officer. This is your opportunity to argue your position, negotiate, and seek an amicable resolution.
  4. Post-Conference: After the conference, the Appeals officer will make a decision based on the information presented. You will receive written notification of this decision and, if necessary, instructions on further steps if the dispute continues.
