Tax Collection Appeals In Tacoma And Surrounding Areas

  • Tax appeals are not handled in appellate courts, but rather go through an administrative process with the IRS Appeals Office. This office is geared toward examining and settling disagreements between taxpayers and the IRS without using traditional trial proceedings.
  • Your case will be examined by an appeals officer who looks into issues of disputed audits, collections litigation, offers in compromise, assessable taxes or trust fund penalties, and other issues of contention.
  • As you can imagine, this process is highly complex, and one misstep can cause a great deal of financial consequences. Make sure to work with an experienced lawyer before moving forward.
