Toney had previously had Appeals conferences and argued the tax. In Toney, the taxpayer and the IRS settlement officer came to an agreement to full-pay the liability within 60 days.
A Notice of Determination and the judicial review it affords seemed unwarranted, since both parties agreed on the proper outcome. But for reasons unknown Mr. Toney did not full pay and did not sign the Form The IRS settlement officer got tired of waiting and sent a Notice of Determination sustaining the lien instead. See Fine v. Because it is not a Notice of Determination, it neither starts the clock running on petitioning Tax Court nor gives the Tax Court jurisdiction on such a petition.
In other words, nothing much happens until you sign and have the Form approved or the IRS gets tired of waiting and sends an actual Notice of Determination. And that is where the question of tactics arises. Why not just enter into the plan and waive the right to review?
One might be concerned that after waiving the right to judicial review the IRS will take some action that seems inconsistent with or just completely reneges on the agreement the parties came to.
Yet believe it or not, having Appeals retain jurisdiction but without Court review is likely cold comfort for many practitioners.
It is in precisely those situations that I am reluctant to sign away the right to judicial review. But assuming as I do that having access to Tax Court review is better than not, a problem remains. Say both parties agree to an Installment Agreement and that the IRS will release a lien after three monthly payments are made. What good is the Notice of Determination in that instance? If three months later the IRS does not withdraw the lien what judicial review do you have?
Your ticket has expired by the time you have cause to use it. I suppose one could argue on some sort of contract theory ground that failure of the IRS to properly follow through with the Form terms should be litigable. Has it been an issue? Prior to law school Caleb was the Tax Program Manager at Minnesota's largest Volunteer Income Tax Assistance organization, where he continues to remain engaged as an instructor and volunteer today.
As far as I can find, this is a case of first impression overturning Craig v. CIR at the appellate level. Based upon too much bad experience, I think the only way to zealously protect your client is to file Tax Court petitions even when a favorable Notice of Determination has been received. This left the taxpayer with no CDP rights.
In theory, the taxpayer can request the Tax Court to retain jurisdiction to enforce the Notice of Determination and to order other relief if things go off the rails. In practice, just as you say the refusal to sign Form creates extra work for Appeals, a seemingly unnecessary Tax Court case creates extra work for the Tax Court.
Thanks for the comment, and I share your frustration. Your idea of filing a petition asking the Tax Court to retain jurisdiction even though the Notice of Determination is not, on its face, something either party disagrees with is an interesting tactic I have never tried. I also wonder if the Court may say that the case would only be ripe when the IRS fails to live up to its end of the deal, and then there would be cause for a remedy not in Tax Court, but in district court on some sort of quasi-contract or wrongful collection damage action.
