APPEALS MEDIATION PROGRAMS - Online Self-Help Tool (START)

START


I disagree with IRS’s decision or action. Should I consider mediation? If so, which mediation program best fits my situation?


This self-help tool explains our different mediation programs and aims to help you understand when to discuss mediation with the IRS person assigned to your case.


Before you begin…

You must note that mediation does not bypass or replace the standard audit or collection processes.


This tool is for you if all the following statements apply:

  • You wish to resolve your tax dispute at the earliest opportunity
  • Your case is still under consideration with no letter received from IRS offering appeal rights
  • There are a limited number of disputed issues
  • You have provided IRS with the information to support your position

If this tool does not fit your needs, consult What Can Appeals do for You? to learn more about the IRS Office of Appeals.
