Overview of IRS Appeals

Jones Day Presents: An Overview of IRS Appeals Judicial Approach & Culture Project (AJAC)

The appeals process remains a critical component in resolving tax disputes with the U.S. federal government. As such, the IRS introduced the Appeals Judicial Approach and Culture ("AJAC") Project to introduce a quasi-judicial approach in the handling of tax controversies.

In the first in a series of videos focusing on tax disputes, Jones Day partner and tax litigator Chuck Hodges discusses the AJAC Project and how it can impact strategies for corporations working to resolve disagreements with the IRS.
