How to appeal a decision by the IRS or ADOR
There are multiple methods of appealing the decisions of the IRS. Within the IRS itself, you can appeal to the auditor's supervisor or file for an administrative appeal to the Appeals Office. You also have the option of taking on the IRS in court. Within 90 days of the date the IRS mails you a notice of deficiency, you can file a petition to the United States Tax Court. You can also take action in the United States Court of Federal Claims or a United States District Court. In order to file a petition with either of these courts, you must allow the IRS to assess the deficiency, pre-pay the payment, and then sue for a refund of all or a portion of the tax paid.
Decisions made by the Arizona Department of Revenue may also be appealed, both internally within the agency and formally in court. To appeal Arizona income tax assessments, a taxpayer must petition the Arizona Tax Court; for property tax assessments, a taxpayer must petition the Arizona Board of Equalization. Most other types of Arizona tax assessments are handled through the Office of Administrative Hearings.
