Is an IRS Audit Appealable?

Most taxpayers are not thrilled at the prospect of an IRS audit. Audits can often result in negative consequences such as back taxes, interest, penalties, and in the most serious cases, criminal charges. What many taxpayers do not realize is that they do have some recourse when their audit results in unfavorable consequences.

In order to facilitate the many taxpayers who wish to appeal their audits, the IRS has created an Appeals Office to resolve such controversies. Through the IRS Appeals Office, taxpayers can attempt to resolve concerns over their audit without going to court.

If you do not want to go through the IRS Appeals Office, you may go directly to tax court. You will have 90 days from the date that you receive your audit results during which to initiate a claim in tax court.
