At 20/20 Tax Resolution, we understand the important role that Appeals can and often does play in obtaining the resolutions our clients require. This particular function of the IRS operates separately of IRS Collections. At 20/20, appeals are employed as part of a larger strategy to accomplish taxpayers’ goals.
Collection Due Process (CDP) and Collection Appeal (CAP) rights exist in every case. It’s never a question of whether a taxpayer will be given appeal rights. Rather, each appeal has its own distinct timing and use. Each cases’ rights and opportunities must be carefully evaluated at the start of a case then throughout the negotiation process to ensure a taxpayer’s interested are protected.
Over the years, the use of collection appeals has become too much of a talking point rather than a purposeful strategy. As it result, it is important to note that appeals should always be conducted on a case by case basis. Further, we have the advantage of recognizing trends in the IRS practice to determine the cases that would be best served in appeals.
