Appeals DOES NOT take sides in a dispute; rather we offer an objective point of view on each individual case. See the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration’s report (PDF) on their audit of Appeals’ independence.
 

Appeals also offers mediation services through Fast Track Settlement, Early Referral, and other mediation programs. These mediation programs are designed to help you resolve your dispute at the earliest possible stage in the audit or collection process.
