How Does Tax Court Work?

The United States Tax Court is a court that handles disputes between taxpayers and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). 

Taxpayers can bring various types of cases to the US Tax Court, including:

  • Tax Deficiency Cases: Not satisfied with the results of an audit? The IRS may issue a notice of deficiency (90-day letter) to the taxpayer. If the taxpayer disagrees with the amount of taxes owed, they can bring a case to the US Tax Court to challenge the deficiency.
  • Collection Due Process Cases: These cases involve disputes over the collection of tax debt owed by the taxpayer. If the IRS attempts to collect taxes from the taxpayer through liens or levies, the taxpayer can bring a case to the tax court to challenge the collection actions.
  • Innocent Spouse Relief Cases: These cases involve disputes over the responsibility for taxes owed by a married couple. If one spouse believes they should not be held responsible for taxes owed by their spouse, they can bring a case to the US Tax Court to seek innocent spouse relief.
  • Tax Court Petitions: Taxpayers can also file a petition with the tax court to challenge an IRS decision or ruling, such as denying a refund claim or assessing penalties.

In general, the United States Tax Court has jurisdiction over any case involving federal income tax disputes, and taxpayers can bring their case to the Tax Court before paying any disputed tax amount.

How To Appeal a US Tax Court Decision

If you disagree with the decision made by the United States Tax Court, you have the right to appeal the decision to a higher court. 

Here are the general steps to appeal a US Tax Court decision:

  1. Determine if you are eligible to appeal. If you have a Small (S) case, you cannot file an appeal.
  2. If you have a regular (non-S) case, you have two options: you may either appeal the Judge’s decision or file a motion for reconsideration of an opinion.
  3. If you decide to file a motion for reconsideration of an opinion, you must do so within 30 days after the written opinion was mailed.
  4. In your motion for reconsideration, clearly explain what you disagree with and provide the reasons why you believe your disagreement has merit.
  5. The judge who decided your case will normally decide the motion for reconsideration.
  6. Keep in mind that a motion for reconsideration will not usually be granted unless there are unusual circumstances or substantial errors.
  7. If your motion for reconsideration is denied or if you decide to file an appeal instead, you should consult with a tax attorney to help you navigate the appeals process.

Appealing a US Tax Court decision can be complex and time-consuming, so hiring a qualified tax attorney with experience in appellate practice is recommended to increase your chances of success.

What Happens If You Don't Show up for Tax Court?

If you do not attend your scheduled tax court hearing, the court may issue a default judgment against you. 

This means the court can decide on your case without hearing your story. 

You may be held responsible for any tax penalties the IRS assesses.

Additionally, the IRS may continue with collection activities against you, such as garnishing your wages or seizing your property, even if you did not appear in tax court. 

It is essential to take your tax court hearing seriously and to seek the advice of a qualified tax attorney to help you prepare your case and represent you in court.

Can I Represent Myself in a Tax Dispute?

Yes, you can represent yourself in a tax dispute, but it’s not recommended.

Tax law is a niche field that requires extensive knowledge and experience, and mistakes can have serious consequences.

It’s best to have a tax court representation lawyer on your side to guide you through the legal process and protect your rights.
