What Is a Tax Appeal?

A tax appeal is a common way to resolve your disagreement with the IRS about your tax return. The IRS has an independent Office of Appeals that reviews tax disputes without going to court. You can request a conference or hearing with the Office of Appeals if you:

  • Disagree with the IRS’s decision about your return.
  • Received a letter from the IRS explaining you have the right to appeal their decision.
  • Are not signing an IRS agreement form.

Appealing IRS Collections

When you have back taxes — unpaid taxes from previous years — the IRS may decide to take collection action, such as garnishing your wages or seizing assets and property. If you believe the IRS is taking inappropriate collection action against you, you have a few appeal options, including:

Collection Appeals Program

The Collection Appeals Program (CAP) is available for a wide range of collection actions, including:

  • Asset or property seizure.
  • Tax lien or levy.
  • Installment agreement rejection, modification or termination.

Before you can start the appeals process for a seizure, tax lien or tax levy, you must discuss your case with an IRS Collections Manager. You should be prepared to explain why you disagree with the decision and offer a solution. After your conference with the Collections Manager, you have three days to submit a Collection Appeals Request.

If you’re appealing an installment agreement decision, you do not have to speak with a Collections Manager before filing a Collection Appeals Request. You must submit the form within 30 days of receiving your installment agreement modification, rejection or termination notice.

Collection Due Process

You have the right to a Collection Due Process (CDP) hearing if the IRS sends you either of the following notices:

  • Notice of Intent to Levy
  • Notice of Federal Tax Lien Filing

During this hearing, you can dispute the IRS’s collection action. To schedule the hearing, you must submit a Request for a Collection Due Process or Equivalent Hearing within 30 days of receiving your notice.
