Representing yourself before the Appellate Division of the IRS is a patently bad idea. To do so is akin to representing yourself in front of a court of law. You will be at a distinct disadvantage because you are not trained in Tax Law and have no practical experience in IRS procedure. It is imperative to have expert representation on your side to protect your rights!
Over 80% of disputes between taxpayers and the IRS that could lead to litigation are settled during the appeals process. Therefore, it is imperative to engage a tax professional who understands the ins and outs of the Appeals Office. The IRS handles over 100,000 appeals every year; you are only involved in only one and are at a distinct disadvantage if unrepresented.
An assertive, seasoned and knowledgeable Tax Attorney / CPA can make an enormous difference in the settlement offer you receive at the conclusion of the appeals process. Like yourself, the IRS wishes to avoid litigation because of the time, expense, and risk of an unfavorable outcome. When the IRS loses a case, a precedent is set that could cost the government revenue for years to come. Having a seasoned Tax Dispute Attorney / CPA on your side during the appeals process increases the hazards of litigation perceived by the IRS. To avoid such perceived hazards, Appeals Officers are motivated to settle these matters and avoid the courtroom altogether.
