The United States Tax Court is a court of record under Article I of the Constitution and is the primary venue for litigating a federal tax dispute. The Tax Court hears cases when there is a dispute regarding an IRS deficiency. One key advantage the Tax Court has over other courts is it allows taxpayers to contest a deficiency before paying the disputed amount.

An IRS offer in compromise is an agreement between you and the government that settles your tax liability for less than the full amount you owe.

Installment agreements and offers in compromise are two of the most common ways for taxpayers to resolve their outstanding tax liabilities. An installment agreement is a written agreement between you and a tax agency (i.e., the IRS, FTB, EDD, or BOE) that allows you to pay a tax liability over time through scheduled periodic payments.

The IRS audited over 1.4 million individual income tax returns in 2009, which included field and correspondence audits. Being audited can be an extremely burdensome experience, and knowing the types of IRS audits that exist and how they work can help you be better prepared in the event you are audited by the IRS.
