Nothing is more frustrating than finding out that the IRS or state has come to a conclusion on your tax matter and their assessment in no way aligns with yours. This is where appeals comes in.
If the IRS or state issues a determination with which you disagree, there are several options you can exercise to file an appeal.
There are numerous things to consider when determining if and how you should file an appeal. Trying to make these types of decisions on your own or based upon advice from a representative not seasoned in this arena will quickly become overwhelming, cost you unnecessary fees and greatly increase the chance of receiving a less than desirable outcome.
Without having the right answers, it is easy to get caught up in the system. You may end up right back where you started or even worse, you may do so having spent a large amount in fees. Should you file informal appeals and call it a day? Should you file an appeal with the US tax court? Or should you fall somewhere in between? The answer to these questions is…it depends on your circumstances. Even if you have a high chance of winning an appeal, you still need to weigh the benefit of a positive outcome with the cost of going through the motions.
You need to place your trust in someone that knows where your options lie. DMG Tax Relief can help you understand your appeal rights.
