Home | Audit Reconsiderations / Appeals

If you have received a tax audit and have been unhappy with the result, it is possible to request an Audit Reconsideration or Appeal from the IRS. Working with a tax debt resolution service is the best way to make sure that the information you submit is correct and presented in a way that best represents your argument against the results of the tax audit. At Golden Lion Tax Solutions we represent both individuals and business clients in Audit Appeals and Reconsiderations.

Audit Reconsiderations

An Audit Reconsideration is the less formal of the two options available when you disagree with an audit of your taxes. An Audit Reconsideration can be requested in the following situations:

  • If you did not appear for the audit,
  • Moved and did not receive correspondence notifying you of the audit,
  • Have additional information that was not presented during the audit,
  • If you disagree with the result of a tax audit by the IRS or State
  • If you did not file a tax return as required and the IRS or State have created one for you

This type of request is processed and considered by the Central Reconsideration Unit.

Audit Appeals

If your Audit Reconsideration does not meet your substantiated expectations, it can be further pursued by means of a formal Audit Appeal. By requesting an Audit Appeal, your concerns and substantiating documentation are escalated to the IRS Office of Appeals. Appeals Officers have more flexibility and greater authority when considering all aspects of a taxpayer's audit and challenges raised by the taxpayer than the Auditors who performed the audit.

Most taxpayers find the notion of challenging an audit extremely intimidating. The tax resolution specialists at Golden Lion Tax Solutions are experienced with navigating these waters to advocate for your best outcome given your unique circumstances. You want to ensure you have the best possible advocate fighting for you, which is what you will find with the Golden Lion Tax Solutions team.
