What is the Definition of an Audit Reconsideration

An IRS Tax Audit Reconsideration is the process the IRS uses to reevaluate the results of a prior audit where additional tax was assessed and remains unpaid, or a tax credit was reversed.

If the taxpayer disagrees with the original determination he/she must provide information that was not previously considered during the original examination.

It is also the process the IRS uses when the taxpayer contests a Substitute for Return (SFR) determination by filing an original delinquent return.

Reasons to request an IRS Tax Audit Reconsideration:

 Some reasons for an audit reconsideration request:

  • The taxpayer did not appear for the audit,
  • The taxpayer moved and did not receive the correspondence from the IRS,
  • A taxpayer might request an audit reconsideration also if you disagree with an audit assessment from an initial tax audit of his/her return.

If the IRS prepared your Tax Return under 6020B:

The taxpayer can disagree with a tax assessment created under the authority of IRC Section 6020(b), Substitute for Return (SFR) you can also request a tax audit reconsideration.

You can also qualify if you have been denied tax credits such as EITC claimed, during prior examination.

 Criteria for Reconsideration

  • The taxpayer must have filed a tax return.
  • The assessment remains unpaid or the Service has reversed tax credits that the taxpayer is disputing.
  • The taxpayer must identify which adjustments he/she is disputing.

Tax Authority for the IRS to accept a Reconsideration

The Internal Revenue Service has the discretionary authority to abate an assessment of any tax if it is excess of the taxpayer’s liability per IRC Section 6404(a) (301.6404-1) .

Acceptance of Request

A request for reconsideration will be considered if:

  • The taxpayer requests the abatement of an assessment based on information that was not previously considered which, if considered, would have resulted in a change to the assessment.
  • An original delinquent return is filed by the taxpayer after an assessment was made as a result of a return executed by the IRS under IRC Section 6020(b) or other substitute for return procedures.
  • There was an IRS computational or processing error in assessing the tax.

Non-Acceptance of Request

A request for reconsideration will not be considered if:

The taxpayer has already been afforded an audit reconsideration request and did not provide any additional information with his/her current request that would change the audit results.

Other pertinent information

  • The assessment was made as a result of a compromise under IRC Section 7122. These agreements are final and conclusive.
  • The assessment was made as the result of final TEFRA administrative proceedings.
  • The assessment was made as a result of the taxpayer entering into an agreement on Form 870-AD, “Offer of Waiver of Restrictions on Assessment and Collection of Deficiency in Tax” .

See IRC Section 7459(d). Likewise, when a District Court or the United States Court of Federal Claims dismisses a case for lack of jurisdiction, the case has not been dismissed on the merits.
