Audit reconsideration is an administrative procedure through which a taxpayer disputes the results of a previous IRS audit, or of a substitute return created for the taxpayer by the IRS due to the taxpayer’s failure to file a return. It can be especially useful in situations where the taxpayer’s appeal deadline has passed, and in situations where the taxpayer has new information or documentation not previously considered by the IRS. This course is designed to explain what audit reconsideration is, the benefits of requesting audit reconsideration, eligibility to request audit reconsideration, how to request audit reconsideration, how requests are handled, and further information regarding audit reconsideration.
