The IRS Appeals organization delivered this seminar at the 2014 IRS Nationwide Tax Forum.

Appeals has engaged in a number of efforts over recent years to reinforce our mission to resolve tax disputes independently and impartially. Several policy changes resulting from Appeals’ Judicial Approach and Culture (AJAC) project were implemented in 2013. Additional policy changes, including those related to the treatment of new information, are being implemented in 2014. These changes strengthen Appeals’ policy regarding independence from the IRS’ Compliance functions, as well as ensure true appeal rights for taxpayers. This session will discuss what these changes mean for taxpayers and their representatives with role-playing scenarios covering examination work streams.
