Los Angeles Appeals and Tax Relief
What is an IRS and State tax appeal?
The IRS and State taxing agencies provide taxpayers with an opportunity to appeal case actions, or proposed case actions, related to their tax case. Business and individual taxpayers have the same appeals rights when it comes to collection procedures and actions taken against your tax account.
What are my appeal rights?
Taxpayers are afforded various administrative appeal rights such as a Collection Appeals Program (CAP) and a Collection Due Process (CDP) appeal. CAP is available to this parties and taxpayers in a wide range of situations. Unlike under CAP, taxpayers that file an appeal under CDP can go to tax court if they disagree with the Appeals Office’s decision. An appeal can take the form of a discussion with an IRS manager, an official review by the IRS Appeals Office, a judicial review by the U.S. Tax Court, or all three.
Can I appeal an IRS audit or levy action?
An appeal can be processed throughout all stages of your case. Taxpayers can appeal various actions taken by the IRS or State tax authority such as; bank or wage levys, lien filings, payment plan rejections, denial of penalty and interest removal, IRS seizures, rejection of a tax settlement request, audit tax assessments, and more.
If the IRS, Franchise Tax Board, or other taxing authority has levied your bank account, violated your taxpayer rights, or taken other harmful actions to collect the taxes you owe, you may be entitled to an appeal. To exercise your right to appeal, be sure to submit your appeal within the statutory guidelines and timeframes.
