Common Questions About IRS Appeals

Q: What is the IRS appeal process like?

If you disagree with an IRS decision, you may wish to pursue an appeal. Like most experiences you will have with the government agency, the IRS appeals process requires meticulous attention to detail and an understanding of the limited timeframe for tax-related matters. Like a challenge to a court’s ruling, the IRS appeal process is a used to contest the decision about your tax issue and possibly reverse it. Unfortunately, the IRS doesn’t always rule in the taxpayer’s favor.

Our licensed tax professionals do more than show you an IRS appeal letter sample and where to send the IRS appeal letter. We’ll work within the narrow timeframe to examine every aspect of your argument, protect your IRS appeal rights, suggest additional information to include and execute your IRS tax appeal according to tax law.

Q: Is there an IRS appeal letter sample that can show me what I need to include in my IRS appeal letter?
In your IRS appeal letter, you must include the following information:
  1. Your name, address, and a daytime telephone number.
  2. A statement that you want to appeal the IRS findings to the Office of Appeals.
  3. A copy of the letter you received that shows the proposed change(s).
  4. The tax period(s) or year(s) involved.
  5. A list of each proposed item with which you disagree.
  6. The reason(s) you disagree with each item.
  7. The facts that support your position on each item.
  8. The law or authority, if any, that supports your position on each item.
  9. The penalties of perjury statement as follows: “Under the penalties of perjury, I declare that the facts stated in this protest and any accompanying documents are true, correct, and complete to the best of my knowledge and belief.”
  10. Your signature under the penalties of perjury statement.
Q: What is the IRS Office of Appeals’ address?
There isn’t necessarily a centralized IRS Office of Appeals. You’ll need to send your IRS appeal form to the specific office you’re working with. Our team of experienced professionals can always help you figure out where you need to send any appeal forms or letters.
Q: What are my IRS appeal rights?
Your IRS collection appeal rights are typically outlined in the letter the IRS has sent you. You have a right to request a conference with an Appeals or Settlement Officer. These conferences are informal meetings. You can represent yourself or have a licensed tax professional like ours represent you.
Q: What is the IRS appeals office phone number?
While a specific IRS appeals phone number isn’t available to the Office of Appeals, you can call Taxpayer Service for help at 1-800-829-1040. If it has been more than 120 days since you filed your IRS appeal, you can also call the Appeals Account Resolution Specialist function at 559-233-1267. If you’re looking for an IRS appeals form, you can call 1-800-829-3676.
