How Do I Start an IRS Tax Appeal?

A Tax Appeal can be initiated by:

  • Filing a Protest to the IRS findings subsequent to a Tax Audit.
  • Filing a Protest in the face of a tax collection action such as a tax lien or levy.
  • Filing a Petition to Tax Court

WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN I APPEAL MY CASE?

Normally, the IRS will stop collection action – (Lien, Levy and Seizure) on the tax periods Appeals is considering, unless the IRS believes the collection of the tax is at risk.
