IRS Appeals – Pilot Virtual Service Conference

July 24, 2017 – IRS Office of Appeals Pilots Virtual Service

The IRS Office of Appeals plans to start a new web-based virtual conference option for taxpayers and their representative on August 1, 2017 (IR-2017-122). This is to be a virtual face-to-face option in addition to other existing options for taxpayer conferences (e.g., phone, in person, and virtually through video conference technology which has limited availability at only certain IRS office). The IRS expects this new pilot program to be especially useful for taxpayers located far from an Appeals Office. This is apparently in partial response to the Taxpayer Advocate Reports about the lack of Appeal Offices for certain geographical areas.
