About the Office of Appeals
Every year, the Office of Appeals helps over 100,000 taxpayers resolve their tax disputes without going to Tax Court. We are an independent organization within the IRS whose mission is to help taxpayers and the government resolve tax disagreements. Appeals DOES NOT take sides in a dispute; rather we offer an objective point of view on each individual case. See the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration’s report (PDF) on their audit of Appeals’ independence.
