Appealing Tax Penalties with the IRS
When you don’t file an income tax return or the Internal Revenue Service notices an inaccuracy in your reporting, it’s likely that they will assess a significant penalty for the mistake or delinquency. The good news is that in most circumstances, you can file an appeal to resolve the disagreement to reduce or eliminate the amount you are responsible for paying.
At Ryan Tax Defense, Alex Moghadasi takes an innovative approach to helping his clients appeal IRS penalties in Tampa. If you need the help of an experienced tax specialist, call our office today to set up a consultation.
Types of Penalties Assessed by the IRS
The IRS applies penalties to taxable citizens for a variety of circumstances, but the primary reason is due to delinquency in payment. Additionally, when you supply inaccurate information, they may penalize the mistake. In both circumstances, we help clients file an appeal, as doing so can delay your obligation to pay, while preventing other complications as well.
There are several other circumstances where we can help you appeal an IRS decision that you take exception with. Whether you are subject to an audit, lien, levy, or seizure, with the help of a qualified tax professional, you can file an appeal to help resolve the disagreement.
The Appeal Process
When Ryan Tax Defense assists you with an appeal, we handle the mediation with the IRS for you. Before meeting with the appeals officer, we take your statement and have it notarized before the hearing. This allows us to attend the meeting on your behalf and additionally keeps the IRS from asking you direct questions that could potentially compromise the appeal. For cases involving a subpoena, we’ll have you attend the meeting, but all questions are referred to your attorney.
Once you file your appeal, the resolution process typically takes six months to a year. Your obligation to pay is delayed until the case is closed, though we advise all our clients to start saving throughout the appeals process, so they can pay without complication when a decision is made.

Just because the IRS assessed a penalty for an inaccurate or delinquent filing doesn’t mean you are automatically obligated to pay.
