Tax Appeals – A Powerful Tool

Skill and Experience in Tax Law in Minnesota

If you disagree with your IRS or Minnesota Department of Revenue audit results, you have the right to appeal. At the law firm of Pridgeon & Zoss, PLLC, we have a comprehensive knowledge of federal and Minnesota tax appeals. Let us put our experience to work for you.

Our attorneys pride themselves on their successful record of appealing tax cases in the United States District Court and the U.S. Tax Court, and in the Minnesota tax courts, including the Minnesota Supreme Court.

Your Right to Appeal

After an unsatisfactory audit, you have the right to bring your tax matter before the appeals division of the IRS or MN Department of Revenue. In an appeal, you can protest such tax matters as:

  • The amount of your tax liability
  • Taxation actions taken against you such as tax liens, levies, seizures and installment agreement terminations
  • Penalties and interest

With the help of an experienced tax law attorney, the appeals process can give you a wide variety of workable solutions.

The Appeal Process

At the law firm of Pridgeon & Zoss, PLLC, we help clients through the tax appeal process from start to finish, working with them all along the way to resolve tax disputes. We assist both individuals and small businesses in all stages of the process, including:

  • Reviewing and organizing client documents
  • Drafting and filing a Protest (a document that discusses the facts and frames the client’s situation in terms of the written law)
  • Preparing correspondence and e-mails to IRS or Department of Revenue Appeals Officers
  • Representation of the client’s interests and protection of the client’s rights at the telephone or in-person hearing

After receiving the evidence and testimony at hearing, the IRS or Department of Revenue appeals division will reach a decision. If the decision upholds the audit findings, we can help you with the litigation in the appropriate court of law.
