The Tax Court: Battling the IRS


IRS agents can make errors because they're still people. It's likely that you might need to combat them in court if they don't own up to those errors. How will you achieve this? Is there a cost you need to pay?

You'll eventually get a Notice of Deficiency if you can't agree on an IRS resolution. This is a 90-day notice that states how long you have to file a petition to the proper court which presides over such cases. This particular court is the Tax Court. This is hightly essential because you have no options after 90 days. You cannot ask for an extension or make an appeal. That's the end of the story, and the IRS will have triumphed without a fight.
