DOR Tax Appeals

The Department of Revenue's (DOR) Office of Appeals works with taxpayers to resolve tax disputes involving proposed or final tax assessments, amended returns, and other matters.

The Office of Appeals mission is to resolve disputes in an informal, quick and consistent manner, and to make determinations as to the correct amount of tax at issue. Sometimes, the answer to how a tax dispute should be decided is not always clear. In these situations, the Office of Appeals has the authority to settle tax disputes by accepting less than the full amount of tax in dispute. The Department of Revenue will consider settling a dispute if it is in the best interests of the Commonwealth to accept a lesser amount of tax.
