The IRS audited my business aircraft. Can I appeal their findings?


 

Transcript:

Yes, there’s several avenues in order to appeal the proposed adjustments of an IRS audit provided that you act within the time windows required by the IRS. Generally, they’re going to issue a letter of recommendations and proposed adjustments that allow you a 30-day window in order to file an informal appeal through IRS appeals. If you don’t file during that window of time, you may still have the availability of either tax court without paying the tax first, or filing suit in Federal court if you want to pay the tax and file a refund suit. Often the informal IRS appeals process, especially for aircraft, can be a really valuable way to make corrections to the initial audit adjustments, and is an avenue that’s regularly exercised by aircraft owners when there’s an adjustment at the audit level.
