On July 22nd, 1998, President Clinton signed the IRS Reform and Restructuring Act which made significant changes to the internal organization of the IRS. One of the most notable provisions of this measure was the establishment of the IRS Appeals Division.
The appeals division was established as a fair and impartial way for taxpayers or their representatives to negotiate the settlement of tax disputes outside of the Examinations and Collections Divisions of the IRS. The IRS Appeals Division resolves over 100,000 cases per year and handles a variety of matters including audit decisions, innocent spouse claims, adverse collection actions (liens, levies, and seizures), penalty disputes, installment agreements and offers in compromise.
