Tax Appeals Defined
There are several different types of appeals the IRS offers taxpayers.
- Collection Appeal Request - This type of appeal applies when the taxpayer and an IRS collection officer disagree on any of a number of collection measures or enforcement actions the IRS is implementing against the taxpayer, including: levy, lien, seizure, denial or even termination of a taxpayer installment agreement.
- Request for Due Process Collection Hearing - This is considered an all purpose appeal, and usually takes effect after the IRS has already filed a lien or is set to issue a levy. The taxpayer in these situation may seek a less aggressive, alternative IRS action including: Offer in Compromise, Payment Plan, Innocent Spouse Relief, and other less intrusive forms of reaching an amenable IRS solution. Prior to any filing of this request, there are specific IRS notices and requirements that must be sent or met.
- Application for Taxpayer Assistance Order - This is used as a "final measure" when all other means to resolve an IRS issue have been exhausted. This appeal is handled internally at the IRS by the agency's Taxpayer Advocate Service.
In addition to tax relief processes offered through the IRS tax advocate service, Florida Tax Relief can also connect you to professional independent tax relief specialists who have the experience and expertise to review your tax debt circumstances and work on your behalf to reach a resolution with the IRS. This can, not only help to remove stress, but possibly save you thousands of dollars as well.
