Video 9 : How to Appeal an IRS Tax Audit
Appealing Your Audit Within the IRS

How to Appeal an IRS Tax Audit


1) Why IRS Audit Tax Returns?
A small misinformation in your tax return may cause the IRS to examine your retu
rns more closely.
The IRS says it audits taxpayers for one of three reasons.
a) Random Sampling.
b) Computerized Screening.
c) Comparison of Information Received by the IRS.
All taxpayers dread facing an audit conducted by the IRS.
Most tax audits are directed at high income individuals and businesses.
2) What are the Types of IRS Audits?
The IRS may decide to audit your Returns in one of three ways:
a) By correspondence (letter), requesting information through the mail.
b) By office audit, requiring you to come to the IRS office for the audit.
c) By field audit, in which an IRS agent will come to your business to perform t
he audit.
3) How to Appeal an IRS Tax Audit
The Taxpayer may not agree with the finding of IRS Audit and want to file an Ap
peal.
All appeals are handled by Appeal Office at IRS.
The first step in the appeals process is simply not to sign and return your copy
of the report.
A 30-Day Letter that explains how to appeal the audit.
File your official protest within 30 days of the date listed on the letter.
You have three choices as to how you move your audit to the Office of Appeals
a) If you owe less than $2,500, you can just ask your auditor for an appeal.
b) If you owe between $2,500-25,000, you should write a letter of protest with t
itle as Small Case Request .
Or
You can complete IRS Form 12203, "Request for Appeals Review"
c) If you owe more than $25,000, Form 12203 is your only option.
4) Preparing for an Appeals Hearing
Taxpayer has at least 60 days to prepare for the Appeals process after submittin
g the appeals request.

Use this time to cement the details and arguments you intend to make during the
appeal.
Get the copy of the auditor's file from IRS.
Get all of your documents and other papers organized and ready.
5) Presenting Your Case to the Appeals Officer
Write down what you are going to say to the appeals officer.
An outline of the points you want to make
List the documents and other evidence you want to present
Do not badmouth either the auditor or the IRS.
6) Negotiating a Settlement
The appeals officer wants to avoid the possibility of the IRS losing in court.
Your first request should ask the appeals officer to drop any penalties that the
auditor assessed to you
It is easiest for the appeals officer to give in on.
If he or she is convinced that your intentions aren't fraudulent.
The willingness to compromise will raise your credibility.
Speak in terms of adjustments, items or percentages, not dollars.
Caution:
Don t sign a Form 870 settlement unless you are absolutely certain that you unders
tand it.
Signing this form will prevent you from taking the IRS to tax court.
7) Hire a Tax Professional for Your Appeal.
Don't hesitate to consult a tax professional if you have questions of any kind.
A pre -appeals consultation with a tax professional is a good idea.
Tax professionals know what appeals officers are looking for and can make their
job easier.

The Prevention and Removal of IRS Federal Tax Liens
1) What is a Federal Tax Lien?

A lien is a security interest in an asset, securing the payment of a debt of oth


er financial obligations. Think of it as collateral being used to make sure that
the payee doesn t default on repayment of his or her debts.
A tax lien can therefore be defined
o make sure that a tax debt is paid
xes for an extended period of time,
her assets to ensure that they pay

as a legal claim against a taxpayer s assets t


in full. If a taxpayer fails to pay their ta
the IRS will apply a tax lien against his or
in full.

2) Liens v/s Levies


A tax lien is a document filed by the IRS to protect the government's ability to
collect money.
A levy is the forced collection of tax, for example by confiscating money direct
ly out of a bank account or paycheck.
3) Who Places Tax Liens?
Tax liens can be placed by either the Federal, state or local governments.
Tax liens resulting from unpaid Federal and state taxes are placed by the respec
tive governments.
Local governments can place liens for unpaid local income or property taxes.
Tax liens are public record
The asset controlled by a lien cannot be sold, purchased, refinanced or borrowed
against in any way.
The asset becomes untouchable unless the tax debt is satisfied in full.
4) Notifying Taxpayers that Tax Lien has been Filed
The IRS generally notifies taxpayers after a federal tax lien has already been f
iled.
Federal tax liens are effective beginning ten days
After the IRS issues a written demand for payment of outstanding taxes.
5) Prevent an IRS tax lien
Prevent an IRS tax lien is to not default on tax payments.
Filing your taxes properly and on time.
Paying in full ensures that the IRS will never issue a tax lien against you.
Due to financial hardships, making full payment may not be feasible on time.
You can explore other option to set up an installment payament plan.
In this way the IRS knows that you will pay your debt tax in full over time.
There are certain terms and conditions that apply, but this is the safer route.
6) Removing an IRS Tax Lien

What can you do if a tax lien has already been placed on your property?
You can still get a tax lien removed.
Here are some ways an IRS tax lien can be removed.

b) Either paying off the tax lien amount in full, or settling the debt with an
offer in compromise will cause the tax lien to be removed.
c) The tax lien may become unenforceable due to the expiration of the 10 year st
atute of limitations, and then must be removed.
7) There are two basic ways to remove a federal tax lien
Withdrawal
And
Release.
8) Withdrawal of tax liens
When using this method the IRS treats it as if there was no lien in the first pl
ace
All records are removed
This is done only if there was an error committed by the IRS.
If a tax lien was incorrectly filed against you.
Contact the IRS as soon as possible to get it rescinded.
9) Release of tax liens
If the lien was paid off or settled in time
Lien will be lifted within 30 days of receipt of full payment of funds.
Lien release is automatically done once all debts are paid
But it can stay in your credit history for up to 10 years
It s a good idea to avoid getting a tax lien in the first place.
Under the IRS's fresh start program

a period of time.

to taxpayers where they can pay the amount over

They are ...
Guaranteed Installment Agreements
Streamlined Installment Agreements
Partial Payment Installment Agreement
Non-Streamlined Installment Agreements

00 or less and you meet all of the following criteria:
For the previous five years you haven't filed late or paid late.
All your tax returns are filed.
Your monthly installment payments will pay off your balance in 36 months or less
.
You've had no installment agreement in the previous five years.
You agree to file on time and pay on time for future tax years.
A guaranteed installment agreement is most preferred for delinquent taxpayers

The biggest benefit is that the IRS cannot file a federal tax lien.
Minimum monthly payment will be the total amount owed divided by number of month
s the IRS agrees upon for the installment plan
5) Streamlined Installment Agreements
If you don't meet the criteria for a guaranteed installment agreement.
You should consider a streamlined installment agreement.
In this plan, you must owe a balance of $25,000 or less and agree to pay it off
within 60 months.
If your balance is set to expire under the 10 year statute of limitations
IRS can require full payment within the time leading up to this deadline.

se owing $50,000 or less

Fresh Start Initiative

The main benefit of a streamlined installment agreement is that IRS will not fil
e a federal tax lien
6) Partial Payment Installment Agreements
If the minimum payments for either the guaranteed or streamlined installment agr
eements do not fit.
It may be better to consider a partial payment installment agreement
Under this type of repayment plan, the minimum monthly payment is calculated bas
ed on how much you can afford.
It also permits longer repayment terms that extend beyond 72 months.
IRS may file a federal tax lien to protect its interests in collecting the debts
.
Unlike other plans
The IRS is allowed to regularly re-evaluate the terms and increase monthly minim
ums based on your ability to pay more.
7) Non-Streamlined Installment Agreements
If none of the pre-established plans work in your situation
A non-streamlined installment agreement may need to be negotiated.
You will be required to directly negotiate terms with an IRS agent.
The IRS will ask that you provide them with a financial statement (Form 433-F)
So IRS can analyze what's the most you can afford to pay each month towards your
balance.

The IRS can legally ask you to take out a bank loan, home equity loan, or sell n
on-essential assets.
You can pay off the IRS without needing to get an installment agreement.
