When you owe federal or state taxes, you may have a variety of options, including choices of courts in which to try your case.

Settlements and Tax Litigation

Depending on the type of federal tax, you may have the opportunity to petition the U.S. Tax Court without first paying the tax, penalties or interest. You might also pay your tax liabilities first, and then seek a refund by filing an administrative refund claim and pursuing further judicial remedies in one of the federal district courts or the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.
