Tuesday Tax Tip:

Taxpayer Bill of Rights (Part IV): The IRS has adopted a Taxpayer Bill of Rights as proposed by National Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson

Bill of Rights #5: The Right to Appeal an IRS Decision in an Independent Forum
Taxpayers are entitled to a fair and impartial administrative appeal of most IRS decisions, including many penalties, and have the right to receive a written response regarding the Office of Appeals’ decision. Taxpayers generally have the right to take their cases to court.

What This Means for You
The Commissioner must ensure an independent IRS Office of Appeals that is separate from the IRS Office that initially reviewed your case. Generally, Appeals cannot discuss a case with the IRS unless you or your representative is given the opportunity to be present. RRA 98 § 1001(a)(4), Rev. Proc. 2012-18
See IRS Publication 4227, Overview of the Appeals Process.
The IRS must ensure that an appeals officer is regularly available within each State.
If you do not agree with the proposed adjustment as a result of an examination (audit), you have the right to an administrative appeal. Statement of Procedural Rules, 26 C.F.R. § 601.103(b)
More information next week on Right #5 (IRS NTA web site) (TTT 2/13/18)
