When you take no action and your case involves income taxes, we will send you a formal Notice of Deficiency and bill for the amount you owe. The Notice of Deficiency allows you to go to the Tax Court and tells you the procedure to follow. When you don't agree with the IRS proposed adjustments or changes and you have submitted all supporting information, explanations, or documents, you may: (1) discuss the IRS findings with the person identified (or their supervisor) in the heading on the IRS letter that provided you this information; and if you can't reach agreement, (2) appeal your case by requesting an Appeals Review. If you want to request an Appeals Review, complete this form and return it in the envelope provided to the address in the heading of the IRS letter. Appeals is independent of the IRS office proposing the action you disagree with. Appeals conferences are conducted in an informal manner. Most differences are settled in these conferences without expensive and time consuming court trials. Appeals will independently consider the reason(s) you disagree, except for moral, religious, political, constitutional, conscientious objection, or similar grounds. You can represent yourself in Appeals. If you want to be represented by another person, the person you choose must be an attorney, a certified public accountant, or an enrolled agent authorized to practice before the IRS. If you plan to have your representative talk to us without you, we need a signed copy of a completed power of attorney (Form 2848, Power of Attorney and Declaration of Representative). If you don't reach an agreement in Appeals, the Appeals office will send you a Notice of Deficiency. After you receive the Notice of Deficiency, you may take your case to the United States Tax Court before paying the amount due as shown on the Notice of Deficiency. If you want to proceed in the United States Court of Federal Claims or your United States District Court, see Publication 5, Your Appeal Rights and How to Prepare a Protest if You Disagree, for more information.
