IRS enforcement efforts have gone up and more and more taxpayers are seeking the assistance of the IRS Appeals Division. Audited taxpayers usually have a right to appeal any determination by an agent. They also enjoy the right to appeal any proposed seizure or levy action. But IRS appeals representation is a complex process and every mistake can result in severely damaging penalties.
Practitioners often regard the Office of Appeals as a last resort to resolve an IRS issue because it’s a confusing and intimidating process. The fact is even many veteran CPAs have hardly taken a client’s case to the IRS Appeals Division. Though it may look intimidating to many, going through Appeals could be the only method to get the best outcome for your client. Fortunately, the process is simpler than you may think if you follow the right steps.
