Case Resolution Program

Bring your toughest, unresolved IRS case (one case per tax business) to the Case Resolution Program at the IRS Nationwide Tax Forums. IRS representatives with specialized expertise will be available — by appointment only — to meet one-on-one with tax professionals to discuss one client’s toughest tax case. If the case cannot be resolved on-site or requires further research, it will be assigned to an appropriate IRS expert for follow-up. 

A signed original or copy of your Power of Attorney (Form 2848 (PDF)), authorizing disclosure of confidential tax information, is required and must be presented when scheduling an appointment. Only the practitioner listed on the POA will be allowed in the Case Resolution Room.

To schedule an appointment, visit the Case Resolution table on Monday before the forum begins from 1 p.m. – 6 p.m., or go directly to the Case Resolution Room during the three-day event. To expedite appointment scheduling, bring your Form 2848 (PDF) and a completed Nationwide Tax Forum Case Data Sheet (PDF) with you.  Be sure to bring any supporting documents with you to Case Resolution to assist in expediting your case.  The program is for client cases only. We can’t assist you with any personal tax case or any case in which you have a vested interest. Please contact the IRS or the Taxpayer Advocate Service directly.
