Does the IRS engage in tax arbitration with citizens?

Yes, the IRS has a process for taxpayers to dispute tax liabilities through the Office of Appeals. This process is known as "tax arbitration" or "tax appeal" and allows taxpayers to present their case to an independent appeals officer who will review the case and make a determination. The process is an alternative to going to court and is generally considered to be less formal and less adversarial.

How long does that take generally?

The length of time it takes for the IRS Office of Appeals to resolve a case can vary depending on a number of factors, including the complexity of the case, the workload of the appeals office, and the availability of necessary information. In general, the process can take several months to a year or more to resolve. Some cases may be resolved more quickly while others may take longer. It's also worth noting that the appeals process is separate from the audit process and can run concurrent with it.
