New Tax Deductions 2011
The IRS has an appeals system for people who do not agree with the results of an IRS examination of their tax returns or with other tax adjustments made by the IRS to their tax liability. If you are involved in a tax audit with the IRS, make sure you know and understand all your rights to an appeal an IRS decision. There are also important deadlines in the process that you need to be aware of or it may affect your rights.
After you get the tax auditor's results and you're not satisfied with them, you can appeal to the IRS Appeals division. You will get a thirty (30) day letter from the IRS auditor which will inform you that you have thirty days to exercise your appeal rights. It is likely that it will be nine months to one year before your IRS appeals audit is heard. If possible, try to settle the tax case before or at this appeal by having a skilled representative deal with the process on your behalf. If needed, these settlement negotiations can be continued at the appeals level. For more information on the appeals process go to on our website.
