Appeal a Decision Made by the State Taxation Authority


If you disagree with a decision made by the state tax authority, you have the right to appeal its findings. This appeals process is set up to provide taxpayers an avenue to challenge incorrect or unfair decisions or processes used by the State Department of Taxation. Common appeals include decisions made in a state tax examination (audit), liens, levies, wage garnishments, seizures, penalties, interest, installment agreement denial or termination, and rejection of an offer in compromise.


Filing an Appeal to State Taxation Findings of Back Taxes Owed

In the event that the State Department of Taxation finds you in default of taxes owed or finds that you filed inaccurate returns, you may be assessed penalties and informed of the intent of the state to collect back taxes.  At that time, you may be eligible to file for a State Tax Appeal.  In order to start the appeals process, your tax relief attorney will submit a formal protest letter and request a copy of the state tax auditor’s file.  The protest letter will state that you disagree with the findings of the state and will provide facts in support of your position.


Legal Representation for an State Tax Appeal

While it is not a requirement, it is a very good idea to be represented by a tax lawyer when going through the appeals process of your state's taxation authority. The tax attorney will review your case and determine the best avenue to proceed in order to give you the best chance at winning your state tax appeal to the decision of the taxation authority. Protect your rights by being represented by a tax attorney who understands your situation, as well as Federal, State, and Local tax code, and will fight on your behalf.


If you have received documentation from the State Department of Taxation informing you of your rights during the State Tax Appeals process, you should act quickly to obtain legal tax representation.  Contact Tax Attorney Kenneth Sheppard for a free consultation today at 1-877-505-9455.
