What Is An Administrative Appeal?
What Is The Administrative Appeal Process?
All Administrative Appeals are filed through the IRS Office of Appeals, if you find yourself in a dispute with the IRS or are going through a tax audit, you have the right to appeal any decision made before going to court. The appeal method is often more cost effective than going to court.
In some cases, after an appeal is filed, the IRS will request either written arbitration or a hearing (usually over the phone) with an official within the IRS Office of Appeals in order for a final decision to be made however, arbitration is optional. Most appeals to the IRS are made through a tax professional. If for any reason you apply for an appeal and the appeal is rejected, you are able to appeal the rejection of the appeal as well.
When an Administrative Appeal is filed, the IRS will halt any collection actions taken against you until the appeal is resolved and a decision is made.
