Tax appeals

Tax Appeals in Houston and Nationwide

Many of the different departments within IRS are responsible for making decisions concerning the application of tax law to various taxpayer issues. In some cases, agreement on these decisions, or determinations, cannot be reached. In other words, the taxpayer does not agree with the determination.

The law provides a framework for many of these determinations to be appealed. The IRS Appeals Office is independent of any other IRS office and serves as an informal administrative forum for any taxpayer who disagrees with an IRS determination. An appeal provides a venue where disagreements concerning the application of tax law can be resolved on a fair and impartial basis for both the taxpayer and the government. The mission of Appeals is to settle tax disagreements without having to go to the Courts and a formal trial.

At the Pro Tax Councel in Houston, our tax appeals lawyers take a proactive approach to strategically defend your rights in appealing IRS decisions.

Most taxpayers are not aware that many decisions made by the IRS can be appealed. In fact, several appeals programs are available to address various tax assessment and collection issues.

Should I File a Tax Appeal?

  • Do you believe the IRS made an incorrect decision due to a misinterpretation of the law?
  • Do you believe the IRS did not properly apply the law due to a misunderstanding of the facts?
  • Do you believe the IRS is taking an inappropriate collection action against you?
